How to make Paper Bag Unicorns
Starting at about the center of the bag, draw a unicorn face. I also added fun things like star gems by the eyes.
Cut ears from white cardstock. Color the center of the ears with a pink marker (or draw just the outline with black or silver). Glue these to the top of the bags.
Add flower embellishments to the top of each bag. I find that Glue Dots or hot glue works best. I happened to have paper flowers on hand from a scrapbook supplies store. Alternatively, make flowers from cardstock or print some to cut out and use.
On the centers of each flower, I placed on a button or sticky gem. I also ordered mini flowers from Oriental Trading. My daughter loved using them for her unicorn bag. They worked great for layering on top of the bigger flowers I used for her friend’s unicorn party favor bags.
Now you just have to add the twisty lollipop sticks as a unicorn horn! The Glue Dots worked great for this part and held then in place well. The handles on the white paper bags had a strip over them on the inside of the bags. I added the Glue Dots to both sides of the lollipop sticks and then shoved it under that strip.
These diy unicorn party bags are also fun to make during the party as an activity that the kids can also take home.
