For today’s project, we’re going to take the quintessential school object – brown paper lunch bags – and transform them into lovely lunch bags that your kids will be excited to carry. Ready to get started? Here’s what you’ll need to do.
Decorative lunch bag supplies:

There are literally hundreds of different ways to decorate your lunch bags from the supplies list. Here are some ideas -
Monogram paper lunch bag. Make initials out of construction paper or print the initials onto sticky labels. Use a favorite color for each kid so it’s easy for them to grab the right lunch bag in a hurry. Glue or stick one initial onto each lunch bag.
