Personalise plain party bags or gift bags by sticking on a shape cut out from your kids' own printed paper. Younger kids will need help with the cutting but can do most of the rest of the project.

We made our print by pressing paper onto a paint-covered textured pad cut from an old foam yoga mat. However, you could use just about anything dipped in paint to make a print. Click here for some other ideas.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Print pad (recycle something e.g. textured foam, polystyrene, bubble wrap etc)
Roller
Several colours of paint
Paper
Cookie cutter shape or other template (optional)
Scissors
Googly eyes
Glue
Plain paper gift bags/ paper bags or similar (we bought a big pack from a discount craft shop)

We cut a piece out of an old yoga mat to make a print pad but you could try any textured surface


Method
Apply different colours of paint with the roller to the print pad.

Press a sheet of paper onto the paint surface and then lift off carefully to reveal your print.

When dry, turn over and draw your shape on the back. We used a whale cookie cutter as a template to draw around.

Cut out and glue onto the front of the gift bag.
Glue on googly eyes or other decorations.

Your gift bag is now ready to fill. Why create a few and use them for themed party bags? Our fish bag would be ideal for an Under The Sea party.
