Ever wonder how Native Americans carried small items? Some used a parfleche or pouch made of softened bark. You can make a beautiful replica of one.
Cover your work area with newspaper. Carefully separate four large brown paper grocery bags where they are glued together. Measure and cut out four rectangles approximately 27 by 18 inches (69 by 46 cm) with Crayola® Scissors. Round the rectangle corners.
Soak or spray the four sheets of paper with water. Gently crumple to squeeze out excess water. Use a Crayola Paint Brush or sponge to spread Crayola School Glue on each damp sheet. Layer one on top of the other, with print facing inward. Place heavy objects on top to flatten the bags. Dry.
Fold the top of the layered bags down about 5 1/2 inches (14 cm). Fold the bottom up until it almost touches the top flap. Fold each side into the center to form two flaps. Place heavy objects on the parfleche to hold its shape.
Decorate the outside of the parfleche with Crayola Crayons, using a colorful, authentic Native American design.
Punch holes on the top and bottom of each flap. Thread strings or ribbons through the holes to close the parfleche.
