Attached Handle-Glued, Flattened Paper

This handled bag is nothing more than a grocery bag with two flat paper handles glued to the bag's outside. The places of likely failure are the four glued contact areas that connect the two handles with the bag. These must sustain the sheer forces exerted by the bag's load and user's upward pull on the handles.

Look at Movie 1 to see how much of a load this design was able to sustain before failure. Paper fails suddenly, so watch the replay in slow motion to get all of the details that can suggest ways you might make this a stronger bag.
