PAPER GIFT BAGS

We needed gifts bags for our sharing day, something easy and quick to make. So I came up with these holiday gift bags which turned out pretty nice and neat and most importantly the fastest ones I could make.


They looked good with handles in different colours.

Materials required: Card stock, pva glue and craft foam and hot glue for the handles. I used card stock 170 gsm which were just right thickness fine to fold and paste. A few paper cut outs of stars and snowflakes in various sizes plus a Christmas tree name tag.

So here below are the steps to make them. For more queries about the project,you can always write to me.



Hope this helps if you like to try making them.
With warm wishes for the lovely season. Thank you all.

AWESOME CHRISTMAS WONDERLAND

This past week I decided that my students should cut out simple pine trees and make a pine tree forest or a wonderland for the bulletin board. I remember viewing a gorgeous vintage Christmas card of decorated trees long back. Everybody liked the idea and we wanted to make them all colourful and Christmassy. Since most of them wanted to make as many trees as possible they wanted me to help in cutting them. So I cut them in about three sizes and soon we had a big collection of colourful Christmas trees!

After sorting out the ones for the group activity, we decided to make mini forests. We chose blue sheets of paper for the base and added various cutouts of mountains and foliage before pasting the trees plus we also made some transformable ones! Here are some of them to show you.

 To let them decide the position of the sun or the trees, I applied glue to the lower portion of the mountain and the foliage cutouts so it was easy to shift the trees around before pasting them.
