Looking for budget-friendly ways to decorate for the holidays? Learn how to make paperbag snowflakes with this simple step-by-step tutorial.
Supplies Needed– Paper Bags (Brown or White)– Sharp Scissors– Hot Glue Sticks– Hot Glue Gun– Fishing Line– Clear Tape– Hole puncher
If the bags you are using have handles, cut them off and use 8 bags per snowflake
Take the first bag and run a strip of hot glue from top to bottom in the center. Then run the second strip of hot glue from left to right at the bottom of the bag
Quickly lay the second bag on top and press down. You’ll need to work quickly so the glue doesn’t dry before you seal them together.
After gluing all 8 together, make your snowflake cutouts. This could be as simple as just snipping off the upper corners of the bag. Or you can be more decorative about it and snip off some extra half circles and triangles on the sides.
Then take one side of the snowflake and repeat the glue process.
Open the snowflake so one end of the paper bag meets the other. Press and seal so it now looks like a big snowflake. Hang with fishing line.
