Silly Penguin Fun Keepsake Bag

By: Maria Nerius with Terri Lea Perkins Gee

This is a great paper craft that's easy enough for beginners. Make a Silly Penguin Fun Keepsake Bag from Maria Nerius for someone you love and want to impress.

Silly Penguin Fun Keepsake Bag


  • Green foil paper
  • Sizzix Bigz Pro Die Bag w/Handles
  • Big Shot Express
  • Me and My Big Ideas penguin stickers
  • 25” of light green craft wire
  • Assortment of seed beads (25-30)
  • Coordinating basket filler
  • Glue
  • Scissors


  1. Cut box, fold and crease score lines, put box together and glue all flaps so bag can hold the weight of the items put in it.
  2. Adhere penguin stickers to bag as shown in photo.
  3. Leaving about 1 1/2” Thread your seed beads on to wire (or string one at a time if that works for you). Twist wire to keep bead in place, move to next bead leaving a little space, and repeat until you have about 12” of seed bead light string!
  4. Twist string of seed bead lights around the penguins randomly, use a dab of glue here and there if needed, but wire wraps nicely to hold in place.
  5. Optional, wrap two decks of cards and place inside bag for a fun little holiday giveaway.
