Note from a viewer:
"Thought I'd send you this photo of a variation on your Paper Bag Puppets. Here in Australia the paper bags that we buy in the grocery store are rather 2-dimensional - as in, they don't have the flat bottom that can be used as a flap. Consequently, we have had to adapt the craft a little. We glue all the pieces on the bag, stuff it with a few pieces of newspaper and then attach it to a cardboard tube (such as that from paper towels or cling wrap) with masking tape. Scarlett here has made the clown paper bag puppet. We attached the parts of the face to the bag, then attached the bag to the roll. The collar was then glued over the masking tape and the buttons down the roll. We didn't worry about the arms (I couldn't find a good place to put them). Anyway, this craft was quite a hit!"
Thanks for sending us your tip Vicki!
