DIY Paper Bag Banner

Hallo meine Freundin!

How was your Valentine’s day? I got 3 dozen flowers, ate at the Cheesecake Factory, and enjoyed a classy night out dancing did homework. I also made this lovely banner. We have a billion paper bags from going to the grocery store and I thought it would be fun to make a banner out of them. It was super easy! What took me the longest time was handwriting the letters. I debated painting them and I’m sure they would’ve looked really cute, but I refrained. This craft is so simple, free, and sweetens up the place. Give it a try! If you end up painting the letters, send me a picture of your hard work.


Step One: using a sheet of paper cut out the size of the triangle you want to use.

Our stack of paper bags. I only used 2 bags for this craft. You can cut out 6 triangles to one bag easily.

Trace the triangle on the paper and cut out

I ironed the paper a little just to get out a few creases

Using a sharpie, write what you want your banner to say
