What you need

  • White paper lunch bag
  • decorative scalloped scissors
  • glue stick
  • candy themed scrapbook paper
  • scissors
  • black paper (we used black music note paper)
  • orange gingham paper
  • pink colored pencil
  • black Sharpie marker
  • 2 large pom poms
  • 2 paper fasteners
  • instant grab glue
  • silver glittery ribbon

What you do

Use the scalloped scissors to trim about an inch off the top of the bag.

1

Use candy themed scrapbook paper to create the scarf. Cut a strip the width of the bag and about 2" high. Use the glue stick to attach it to the top third of the bag.

2

Cut two more strips of candy themed paper for the hanging ends of the scarf. Tuck them under the left side of the neck part of the scarf. Trim the ends and fringe with scissors.

3

Cut two half circles from black paper. use glue stick to attach to the bottom of the front of the bag.

4

Cut a long triangle from the orange gingham paper for the nose. Place the nose on the face section but don't glue it yet. Use the pink pencil to draw on rosy cheeks. Now glue the nose in place with the glue stick.

5

Use the Sharpie marker to draw on eyes and mouth.

6

Use instant grab glue to attach the head of the paper fastener to a pom pom. Repeat with the other fastener and pom pom. Cut or poke a hole in the ends of the ribbon (first figure out how long your ribbon should be by positioning the ribbon over the top of the bag).

7

To attach the handle, poke a small hole in each side of the bag where the handle end will go. Insert the paper fastener through the ribbon end then through the bag, bend the fastener in place inside the bag.
