Take it away Bug.
This morning I found this book of princess projects.
I decided to make one of these swish bags. I liked the one gold one on the bottom the best.
- Brown paper bag
- scrap book paper
- Cricut or paper circle paper punch
- glue stick
Cut the top of the bag off.
Cut a triangle with a flap on the bottom out of craft paper:
Put glue on the flap:
Put the flap on the back of the bag:
Start gluing the circles on the bag:
Cut the top off of any circles that overlap the top of the bag so that the flap can close.
Turn the bag around and glue the circles on the back of the bag:
Decorate the flap if you want:
Last, glue a piece of velcro to the inside of the flap and the front of the bag.
(Note from Mom: I clipped some of the velcro loops off to make the velcro much less strong for bug, otherwise when opening the bag I'm sure it would have ripped.)
Here is the finished bag:
And - don't forget to clean up!!!
Thanks for reading!
I can't tell you how much fun I had helping Bug with this project and this post. She had such a good time, I guess after the year and half of watching me blog my way through projects the blogging finally wore off.
I think these little bags would make great gift bags, treat bags and even bags for teacher appreciate gifts.
