How to Make a Paper Bag House for Christmas Packaging

Thursday, December 13, 2012

I have a super cute way to package all the mini Christmas gift items—actually, this would also work as party favors, or treat bags if you’re hosting a Holiday party. Plus, it’s simple, affordable, and very easy to assemble. So easy in fact, I didn’t even bother to take pictures of how I did it—or maybe it’s because I was being lazy. Either way, this is a fun project!
So, all you’ll need for this project is: Brown paper bags from your local dollar store, white cardstock, any pattern paper or wrapping paper for the door and shutters, black cardstock, ribbon, a hole puncher, glue, scissors, and serrated edge scissors (any edge will work).
For the roof, I cut a piece of white cardstock at 8” x 5 ½” folded it in half, and cut the ends using my serrated edge scissors, and set aside. I cut piece of pattern paper for the door at 2” x 2 ¾” and used my hole punch on some scrap white cardstock for the door knob. Next I cut the green part of the window at 2 ½” x 2 ¼”, and cut a white piece of cardstock at 2 ¼” x 1 ¾”. Stamped a tree image in green and adhered it to the green window piece (if you don’t have a tree stamp you can simply cut a tree out of another piece of plain or pattern paper). Next, cut out a few slim strips of black cardstock for the window frame and adhere those. Once those two pieces are finished, you can apply them to the brown paper bag. Next cut out a thin piece of white card stock and hand cut some waves on it for a cute snowy effect, and adhere that onto the bag as well. Once all of those eliminates have been glued you can fill your bag with treats, a gift, or party favors! Fold the top over, and place the white cardstock roof over the fold, and using your hole puncher, punch two holes near the top of the bag and apply your ribbon closure. A-dor-a-ble! Thanks for stopping by!

  19. God is Good! I promised God that I would share my testimony on this website. I had all the signs of STD Virus but I was not too sure as to which one. I did a lot of online research and scared myself straight for a whole week before going to see the nurse. She took one look at my genital part and first said that it could just be the anatomy of my body, then she said it looked like genital warts and that I MAY have herpes. I was devastated. She gave me some medicine for the herpes and some cream for the warts. I was also tested for every single STD including herpes. I went home and cried searching the web for all sorts of cures for herpes and awaiting my results. I saw a post whereby Dr. Kham cured Herpes and other diseases, I copied his contacts out and added him on WhatsApp via +2348159922297. The next day my test result was ready and I confirmed Herpes positive. I told Dr. Kham about my health problems and he assured me of a cure. He prepared his herbal medicine and sent it to me. I took it for 14 days (2 weeks). Before the completion of the 14 days in which I completed the dose, the Blisters and Warts that were on my body were cleared. I went back for a check-up and I was told I'm free from the virus. Dr. Kham cures all types of diseases and viruses with the help of his herbal medicine. You can reach Dr. Kham via his email address on (dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com) or call him on +2348159922297 and WhatsApp him on the same number, but You can Also Visit his website to know more about him at https://herbal-dr-kham.jimdosite.com/ or visit his Blog at https://drkhamcaregiver.blogspot.com/ for more info.
