Paper Bag Challenge and a linky

It’s time for another Tinkerlab Creative Challenge… this month the challenge is Paper Bags.  (Tinkerlab has also included a giveaway this time!  Make sure to check it out!)

(I actually had to make a point to get some paper bags from the store…. I guess that’s the down side to all of those reusable bags. 😉 )

Paper Bag Mini Coloring Book
I loved the way that Tinkerlab set out the material already altered in the Magazine Challenge.  So this time I tried to think of several different ways to present these Paper Bags.
I cut up a paper bag.  Crumpled some.  Punch holes to make paper bag circles.  Cut some strips and set everything out for the M and M to see while they ate snack.
Little M’s area quickly looked like this… can you count the creative projects in the works here?
Big M grabbed an old gum box out of the art cabinet.
I watched quietly as he cut off the top.
He measured the box and started cutting… hmmm.
Big M stapled five square pieces of paper bag together and announced.
“It’s a coloring book!”
We worked together to decorate the outside of the gum box.
Big M awarded me this adorable coloring book.. to keep in my purse .  All that was left was to add the coloring pages.
Big M made a star.
Little M made a unicorn.
I guess I’ll just slide this Mini Coloring Book into my purse and save it for the next time I’m waiting in line. 😉
