Aren't these cereal box gift bags wonderful? And while we made these for Purim, they're great year round to use for gifts or even as fun catchalls. And they can look super regardless of the artistic skill of the child or adult making them! These were made by 1st and 2nd graders, or rather the boxes were stamped with potatoes and sponges, then I hot glued them together, and in some cases a black marker was use to add some hand drawn details.
I love the innocent little drawings, precious!
And if you'd like to do this project in your home why not decorate a bunch and then store them flat until the need for a great gift bag arises!
You'll Need: cereal and cracker boxes carefully split open at the seam, and stamped with potatoes and sponges, and even painted on with kid friendly gouach paint.
How To: After artwork is dry, reassemble your box, this time inside out, using hot glue. Of course you'l leave the top open, and you can choose to cut the flaps off at the top, or glue then down which actually serves to cover some of the printed surface, making a cleaner finish. Punch holes for handles, this will take a bit of effort if you've glued the flaps down, and attach some elegant ribbon.
