Inspired by a post on www.thesitsgirls.com, crafting expert Sophie Maletsky recreates this beautifully simple paper bag star.
7 or 8 paper bags all the same size
hot glue gun
Lay 7 paper bags on top of each other. Be certain they are all facing the same direction.
Glue each one of the bags together. I have found it easiest to do this by making a "T" of glue on the bag.
Carefully place the next bag on top lining them up exactly.
When all of your bags are glued together use your scissors to cut a rounded edge on the paper bag and create a pedal shape.
Carefully open up each bag. As you do the bags will take on a circle shape. Place another T-shaped line of glue on the
After glueing the star together add a hole from which to hang the star.
Loop yarn or string through the hole to hang your star.
Shake off those winter blues
