Reuse old leftover from gifts and create your own gift bag puppets using Makedo re-pins and re-clips available at mymakedo.com. The creative possibilities are endless.
For this project you will need old gift bags and reclaimed materials such as bottle caps and left over gift wrapping paper to create you puppet.
Fold the corners in of the bottom of the bag flap. This will define the nose of the creature.
Use the point end of the Makedo safe-saw, punch a hole of where its feature will go.
Punch a hole on the bottle caps and extra materials that you will attach to the creature.
Using the Makedo pin, connect the features on to the bag and secure in place with a Makedo clip.
Repeat this step to connect the remaining features.
Using left over gift wrapping create ears. For this project we simply created a pleat fold as the ears. Connect using Makedo pins and clips.
Your creature is done. Simply place your hand in the bag and move it up and down to make its mouth move. Create other interesting gift bag puppets ...
