  1. Fold a corner of a brown paper bag at a 45 degree angle. This forms a triangular layer on top.
  2. Fold the pointy corner down so the pointed tip extends beyond the horizontal layer made in step 1.
  3. Tuck the pointy corner under the layer made in step 1. Note: this only works if there is enough material to tuck under.
  4. Voila! A convenient and secure handle where once there was none.
