Paper Bag Puppy Puppet
February 17th, 2013 by Craftylocks

When you get something in one of those paper bags that has a nice square bottom – be sure to keep it, as that is half way to becoming a cute puppet. This basic technique can be used to create all sorts of critters – just vary the details to change the dog to a rabbit, elephant, martian, etc.

Start with the paper bag folded flat, have the section that would be the bag bottom when it is fully opened, facing up – this is the side that gets the most decorating attention. We have also folded the corners of the bag bottom in to round out the ‘face’ a little.
Add on the details for your character. At this stage I thought this puppy was looking OK, but the kids had other ideas.
I am very glad that they did take over – it is a much improved puppet pooch.

I hope you can see on this picture how some of the features like the ears and front legs are attached to the sides of the bag.
