Craft Idea for Christmas and Winter - Paper Bag Snowflakes
Here in Germany, you can purchase packs of paper bags called “Butterbrottüten”. Translated, these are “Butter Bread Bags”. These are used to pack sandwiches for school and work. Because these are so inexpensive, they are also used a lot for crafting. This pretty snowflake idea is popular in this country. With just 8 of these bags, you can create a snowflake within 10 minutes. When hanging from the ceiling or from a curtain rod, these look so light and dainty.
Christmas Paper Craft - Scandinavian Inspired Christmas Gift Tags
The colors of red and white together look so festive for Christmas and have a Scandinavian feeling to them. If you have ever been to Denmark in December, you can see this with your own eyes. Store windows and street decorations are mainly only in these two colors. For this project, gift tags in just these two colors were created to add a seasonal look to all of your gifts.
Stencilled Christmas Gift Bags
Small brown paper bags can look so festive when pepped up with stencils and paint.
Advent Craft - Paper Bag and Decoupage Advent Calendar
An inexpensive pack of thin white paper bags was used to create this simple advent calendar. The advantage of using paper bags is that all you have to do do is decorate them. Paper napkins with country Christmas motifs were used to embellish the bags and give them a charming look to them.
