CIY Staff Tips:
- Beyond paint and markers, decorate paper bags with Crayola Crayons and other colouring supplies.
Decorate the large and bottom panel of a paper bag with paint and paint brush. Dry 1 hour.
Paint a design on the other large panel, then dry 1 hour.
Follow the same process on both side panels. Dry 1 hour.
Repeat Steps 1-3 on 7 more paper bags. Use markers to decorate with no dry time!
Hold a folded, decorated paper bag with open end at top. Make an upside-down “T” on the large panel with glue. Put another paper bag on top and press down. Repeat up until the last bag.
With scissors, cut a point at the open end of the paper bag stack.
Make upside-down “T” with glue on the large panel of the last bag. Gently fan the paper bags, then connect and glue together the first and last paper bag to make a paper star.
Hole punch the top of the paper star, then feed through and tie the ribbon.
Hang as a party decoration or everyday décor!
