Mini Art Book Kids love a blank canvas and you can create a whole stash of them using recycled paper bags! Learn how to make these mini art books with a few simple folds and cuts. Supplies needed: Large paper grocery bag Scissors Your favorite coloring tools Steps Cut out an 8 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ section from your paper bag. Fold your paper in half hot dog-style, and unfold. Fold your paper again, this time hamburger-style, and leave it folded. Fold one open edge in half back toward the middle. Fold the other open edge back the same way. Unfold your paper to hamburger-style again, and cut from the folded edge to the center. Unfold completely to reveal the center cut, then fold in half again hot dog-style. Push the outer edges in together. Then fold the pages to create your book. Use your favorite crayons, paints, stickers, and any other fun art materials to decorate your mini art book!
