Paper Bag Star Tutorial

So many of you saw the star tutorial I posted on Facebook back in December.  I thought it was such a fun idea and knew I needed to try it out.

I did a little pictorial tutorial for you if you would like to try it also.  Thank you to Heidis Gesundheitstheke and her video.

Here is my version.  It took about 10 minutes to make and I have already made three....so much fun!

When you are done you can punch a hole in the top of the star and thread ribbon or twine through it as a hanger.

Supply List

8 Flat White Paper Bags 6x9 inches
Glue Stick
Scissors for cutting the point (I used my Olfa cutter and a ruler for this part)
Hole Punch
Ribbon for hanging
Cute Little Duck as a prop

  1. That's pretty amazing and quite simple afterall. We probably could have made several during some Christmas movie. ;)

    1. That is a great idea Leslie. The kids would love making these. You could even color the bags red or pink and make them for Valentines day.

  2. Great write-up, I am a big believer in commenting on blogs to inform the blog writers know that they’ve added something worthwhile to the world wide web!.. window patcher
