Browse Articles Videos By CategoryFood DrinkHobbies, Games ToysNow, I’d like to show you something really fun to do with a paper lunch sack. I’m going to wrap a bottle of wine today, but you could wrap anything in this. You could put a t shirt, or a mugful of candy, or anything that will fit in a lunch bag, you can use for this wrapping technique. You could wrap a sandwich like this, wouldn’t that be a fancy lunch?
