Watermelon Fun!

How to make a cute and fun
watermelon gift bag...

I just love giving "gifts with a theme!" 
 Here is an example of a gift bag, decorated by my daughter and I, adorned with cute little watermelon slices.

Materials needed:
  • Green,  red and black card stock paper
  • Scissors
  • Black crayon or marker and a pencil
  • Tape
  • Hole punch
  • Tag and ribbon(if desired)

How to...

Step 1: Using green card stock, trace(using a cup) a circle on the green paper and cut out.  Then cut the green circles in half.
Using the green semi-circles as a guide, make a smaller semi-circle with red card stock.  Once you have the desired size for the red semi-circle, use it as a template for the others.

Step 2:  Using tape, attach the red semi-circles to the green semi-circles.

Step 3:  Using the hole punch, clip a few(about 3) "bites" out of the top of each watermelon slice.
Step 4:  Decorate!
Using a crayon or marker, draw seeds and smiley faces(if desired.)

~Little hands love to create!~

Finished bag---It was a group effort!
Add a tag, ribbon and some watermelon seeds cut from black card stock.

I just love "gifts with a theme!"
These adorable items were all purchased at Wal-Mart.
The watermelon cutting knife was the inspiration for the gift.
