I need to produce paper bags. Is there any simple receipt for making paper glue so that brown (packaging) paper will stick to itself?

There are a few different ways of making your own glue, here are four different versions you can try :

Simple Glue Ingredients: 1/2 cup flour 1/3 cup water

Paper Mache Glue Ingredients: 1 cup flour 1/3 cup sugar 1-1/2 cup water with 1 tsp white vinegar mixed in

Cornstarch Paste Ingredients: 1-1/2 cups cold water 2 tablespoons cornstarch 2 tablespoons corn syrup 1 teaspoon white vinegar

Simple No-Cook Flour Paste: 1 cup flour 1/2 cup water 1/8 teaspoon salt
