If this Paper Bag Handprint Eagle Craft was just the typical handprint craft then it would be cute enough. There’s nothing better than using our little one’s hands in a cute holiday project. Except when we also use our own for a mom and me layered handprint keepsake.
That’s right moms, or dads, too. Use your own handprint along with your little one to form the wings of our beautiful, big paper bag eagle. This is the sweetest 4th of July craft!
Use a Paper Bag to Make a Handprint Eagle Craft
To make our Paper Bag Handprint Eagle Craft you will need brown paper lunch bags, cardstock in white, brown, and yellow, medium googly eyes, scissors, and a glue stick.
Handprint Eagle Craft Supplies Needed
- Paper lunch bags
- Cardstock – brown, yellow, white
- Googly eyes, medium
- Glue stick
Paper Bag Eagle Craft Step by Step Directions
Begin by tracing the little one’s handprint on brown cardstock.
Then mom, or dad, traces their handprint on brown cardstock, as well. Double up the cardstock, because you’ll need 2 handprints of each size.
And cut out the handprints.
Now, on a white sheet of paper, mark to size the flap of the bag.
Cut out. You will also need to cut out another of the same size, then make jagged edges along one side.
Glue the white sheet to the flap of the bag.
And glue the white jagged edge piece under the flap.
Next, glue the handprints to the side of the bag. The adult handprint on top with the littler handprint layered under it.
Then, cut a triangle beak and two feet from yellow cardstock.
Glue the feet in place on the bottom of the bag.
And glue googly eyes and the beak in place, as well.
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely adore this July 4th Eagle Craft!
