These adorable woodland animal paper craft bags are great to make as a craft, or to give with a gift inside.
If you are looking for a fun way to teach kids about animals, let them make these cute forest animal crafts.
With our free template for a rabbit, fox and squirrel, you can cut out these patterns right now and start crafting.
We used these templates to make adorable bags. And we used construction paper to make bags in accompanying colors (you can see a video of how to do it below).
However, you can add the animal shapes to plain brown paper bags. Or, just glue on a piece of paper.
If you like these paper animals, you will like our Woodland Animal Paper Wreath, too.

Prepare a paper bag using an 8 inches × 8 inches orange colored craft paper or any colored craft paper you prefer for the fox. You can also use a sheet of paper if you don’t want to make a paper bag fox.
Attach the belly pattern of the fox below the head (or in the middle part of the bag or piece of paper).
Attach the head of the fox on the top side of the bag. Keep about half of the head above the top of the bag.
Attach the tail in between the side folds of the bag.
Use a black marker to draw the eyes and nose of the fox.
Repeat the same steps for the other woodland animals.
