As part of Design and Technology this term we have looked at paper carrier bags. We looked at the different designs and how they were put together. We investigated what the handles were made from and how they were attached to the bag.
We predicted how much shopping we would manage to carry in the bag before it split. We were pleasantly surprised. Most of the bags held up well with a pile of tins and packets in them.
As part of the task we looked at how shops advertised on their bags. This gave us ideas for designing our own company bags.
