Paper Gingerbread House Gift Bag Craft Kit
I made these for my team at work and they turned out so cute! It does take a bit of assembly time but the outcome is far worth it and cost so much less than purchasing a cute bag of this quality! I just received a promotion and I am planning on making these bags for my new team too!

I do wish the pieces were self-stick so the children could do it more independently.

cute idea LOTS of pieces
Got these for a craft party with 70 kids. They didn't follow picture because they were bored by the time they unplucked everything from the foam pages. so many little pieces and they didn't have sticky backs.
Lots of glue, lots of time, lots of clean up, and unless you followed instructions didn't look so great. Oh and the brads were IMPOSSIBLE to use to close bags. Cute idea though if you maybe had 3 older kids with a crafty heart.

I bought this for my kids to decorate to be able to put everything that they make for family as a Christmas gift. Its very cute and has more then enough pieces. I used super glue which is hard with kids because it is so hot, but I've heard that they have a "cold hot glue gun" I will have to check that out next year.

Harder than they look!
They are adorable! But they are harder than they look. I stuffed the bag with newspaper to make it dimensional and stapled the bag closed and did not use the brad provided. Not good for young children, but 8 and over will enjoy it.

I purchased this craft to do at a holiday party with 14 year old girls. It looked like a fun activity but was too time consuming and frustrated the girls. The pieces are heavy and don't glue very well to the bag. Just ended up not being very much fun for them.

I really like the finish product, but getting there was a challenge. There are so many pieces, it would have been much easier to have pre-glued pieces so you could just tear the back off and stick the pieces where you wanted. I also had trouble getting the brad closure to work how I wanted it to. With that being said, it is really adorable when its all completed. Lots of room for imaginative placement of the pieces for and individualized product.

Enjoyable & creative
Purchased for a class Christmas party. Even I enjoyed putting together an example for the class! Good for ages 5-9 or thereabouts. Once finished & dry, they can use them to carry their goodies home!

They turn out very cute!
Like others stated, the bags are very weak and if you put something in it, the bottom will begin to open. I solved that with a piece of clear packing tape along the bottom, worked great. The little pieces are adorable, and regular Elmers glue worked just fine for us. We did only do one side at a time. We didnt do the sides of the bag but really loved having the extra pieces then, the kids made their own scenes on paper! The little brads work GREAT! I admit I was skeptical the little red brad was going to punch through the foam and bag and actually hold it together, but it really put the finishing touch on! We used these bags for prizes for a family Christmas game and everyone loved them. I would buy again!

Good hands on project.
Good project to do with children. My my biggest compaint would be the bags. We used it for something light weight, but anything heavier than a foam magnet may have fallen through the bottom. The students liked being creative and they all looked great.
