These stunning paper bag stars are easier to make than they look. We promise!* They can be made with white or natural kraft paper bags in a variety of sizes - the larger the bags the larger the star. The bags do need to be the same size relative to each other to achieve this look.
12 Ross & Wallace paper grocery bags
1 large glue stick
Completely coat the back of the bag with glue (the side without the bottom fold).
Place the front of another bag (the side with the bottom fold) on top of the bag you’ve just applied glue to and press down firmly.
Repeat step one and two until all twelve bags are glued and pressed in a stack.
STEP FOUR (ADULTS ONLY):
Cut diagonally across each top edge of the stack of bags. Center cuts can also be added to vary the design.
Add glue to the back of the top bag in your stack and open the stack of bags, so that you can press the top bag firmly to the bottom bag in the stack forming your star. Hold until the glue sets.
Decorate! You can decorate the bags before or after you’ve created your star. To hang the star simply punch a hole and attach your string.
