I have the cutest Paper Bag Santa Craft to share and it even comes with a Free Printable Template for super easy Christmas crafting!
This Paper Bag Santa Craft is made up mainly of a bunch of circles. There’s three large circles, one for Santa’s jolly belly, one for his mustache and beard, the other circle is used for Santa’s hat. Then, there’s pink, white, and black 1” circles that can easily be punched out with a 1” circle punch. Or, cut them out using our Free Printable Template. Plus two rectangles for the belt and hat trim.

Aside from our Santa Free Printable Template, other supplies needed are a paper lunch bag, large googly eyes, off-white paint, 1” circle punch, scissors, glue, and cardstock in red, black, white, and pink.
Paper Bag Santa Craft
- Paper lunch bag
- Large googly eyes
- Acrylic paint – antique white or cream color
- Cardstock – red, black, white, pink
- 1” circle punch
First, paint the bottom flap of the paper bag an off white or cream color. We used an antique white. Let dry completely.
Print and cut out the pieces to our Santa Free Printable Template.
Once the paint on the bag is dry, glue on two pink circles for his cheeks. Glue on two googly eyes. Take a red circle and glue in place with it tucked under the flap. Glue the black belt in place.
Cut a large white circle in half where one side is slightly larger than the other. Cut a long V notched from the cut side of the smaller piece. Glue in place for the mustache.
Then cut a deep U shape out of the other side and make wavy edges. Glue in place for the beard. This should be cut where just a touch of the red from the bottom circle is showing through.
Tuck the two black circles under the bottom of the large red circle for his shoes.
Trim wavy fingers out of two of the white circles and tuck in place along side the red circle for his gloved hands.
Take the other red circle and cut in half. You can trim one side of circle so the top is slightly more lopsided if desired.
Then, top with the final 1″ white circle and glue the white rectangle hat trim in place. Glue on top of Paper Bag Santa.
Finally, trim the excess bag from around the circles.
