As promised, here is the bison project I made. The entire thing is made with a single paper bag. Affiliate links below.
Paper Bag Bison
Carefully open a paper lunch bag. You should be able to peel it open without cutting it. I'm reusing one I got from the store when I bought bagels. It's wrinkled, but that totally doesn't matter because you'll be adding even more wrinkles!
Use scissors to cut out the bison's body from an edge of the paper bag. Then remove the head from the template and use it to cut an extra head. Cut the remaining portion of the paper bag into two long rectangles.
Trim the horns and beard off the full-body bison. Crumple and then flatten each piece, as shown below.
Paint one large rectangle with light blue, then add streaks of white to make the sky. Paint the other rectangle golden. Paint the back half of the bison's body light brown and the front half (including the head) dark brown. Paint the horns white.
When all the paint is dry, glue the pieces together.
I'm really happy with my bison project!
