DIY Space Themed Paper Bag Craft

List of Supplies:

  1. Colored craft papers ( If you want to be fully hands on with this project, you can make your own paper bag as the directions will show. For younger children, you can always purchase a paper bag and have them put on the space templates).
  2. Satin ribbon
  3. Pencil
  4. Scissors
  5. Craft glue
  6. Template
  7. Printed Directions


Step -1:

Cut a piece of paper to make the paper bag. I prepared mine into 8.5 inches X 5 inches. 

Step -2:

Fold the 8 inches part into half, leaving the 0.5 inch part. Fold the 0.5 inch towards the inside and glue it with the other end of the folded paper.

Step – 3:

Fold up about 2 inches of the paper from either open ends. 

Step – 4:

Open up the folded-up part and flatten its 2 corners with the rest of the paper. This will form 2 flap-like shapes on top and bottom side. 

Step – 5: 

Grab the top flap and fold it towards the middle line (crease) on the bottom side.

Step – 6:

Similarly, fold up the bottom flap and overlap it with the top flap. Apply glue on the overlapped parts to secure the bottom end of the paper bag. 

Step – 7:

Trace the patterns from the provided template on some colored craft papers. Cut out the traced patterns nicely. 

Step – 8:

Assemble the patterns to form the rocket (planet, UFO). Apply glue to attach the parts. 

Step – 9:

Attach the paper rocket on the paper bag. Stick some star cutouts on the bag as well. 

Step – 10:

Cut out 2 small pieces of ribbons and attach them on the top open end of the bag for the handles.
