Paper Bag Crafts

Today I’m excited to be joining up with 49 other bloggers to bring you The Ultimate Guide to 50 Craft Materials. Throughout the months of January and February we are each taking a day to post about one craft material, today is my turn and I’ll be talking about paper bags.

Paper bags are one of those massively under-rated craft supplies that no one really pays attention to, so the infinite possibilities go unnoticed. Today I’d like to share with you paper bag crafts and activities for all occasions.

I’ve done my best to divide them seasonally but some might be fun year round.
