I don't want to buy those horrid plastic bags with spiderman/Ben10/Barbie nonsense on them.

Just want white (brown?) paper bags which roll/fold over at the top (used to put my packed lunch in them when I was a kid) sort of bags

Do they exist? Or is this the moon on a stick???

Have all the 'inards' for the bags, but not the bags yet...

Help please!

I got brown paper bags with handles from the £1 shop, labelled as lunch bags.

oh gawd, am an ebay virgin, don't understand it, too old.

Want to go to a shop...please?

Are these any good?

Hobbycraft do nice white ones with nice sturdy handles

Thanks Chunkamatic, sounds useful. Will look - we have a poundland nearby

I got brown paper bags from one of the supermarkets, I think they are meant for food recycling (it would have been sainsburys or waitrose)

ilovemydog, those look great, but p&p makes it all a bit expensive. Plus I am allergic to that website since they failed me MISERABLY 2 christmases ago...
Really like them though, thanks

Here. But search "white paper bags" and there's loads of variations.

nancy75, I looked in Sainsburys today - nothing. Will try Waitrose, nice to have an excuse!

I tell you what are nice too - those coloured sandwich bags you get in a box of about 30. Most supermarkets. You get stickers in the box too. Look good tied up with some curly ribbon shite. And cheap as chips.

I've used these http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B005GJUJ7O/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1368821914&sr=8-1&pi=SL75 which my daughter then painted flowers on. DS painted trains when it got to his bday (with help from DH). Nicer and more personal than the plastic ones.

BikeRunSki, love these -but it's ebay again! Sends my head in a spin! I need to grow up, don't I?

INeedtoDrinkLess Fri 17-May-13 21:23:22

dowhat, they look good, thanks
DS isn't going to decorate them, not an artistic bone in our family!
stickers maybe...

INeedtoDrinkLess Fri 17-May-13 21:24:26

Legarmpits, like that idea too - thanks
Which supermarket have you seen them in? Perhaps my (big) Sainsburys is shite, not seen them there

BikeRunSki Fri 17-May-13 21:25:11

sorry, Amazon

tammytwigg Fri 17-May-13 21:26:14

I got mine from home bargains ,just plain brown ones,my daughter decorated them and named them.

INeedtoDrinkLess Fri 17-May-13 21:26:45

thanks BikeRunSki, I can 'do' Amazon!

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Fri 17-May-13 21:27:21

Oh I was going to say these but I see you don't like the website. Never mind. smile

INeedtoDrinkLess Fri 17-May-13 21:29:07

thanks ilovemydog, I appreciate your help

(Ilovemydogtoo but not convinced she loves me!)

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Fri 17-May-13 21:29:19

Oh my god there's hundreds on amazon! And they're a lot cheaper. I need some too so will use them instead I think.

We decorated party bags as an activity at the party, which went down well (5 year olds). Just plain white bags from amazon and stickers and felt tips.
