Alphabet Wall: Making…Z for Zoo

This craft is quite uniquely Singaporean, in that, the material used for the background of the letters is the zoo’s souvenir shop paper bag packaging. Personally, I think it’s really nice to be able to pay tribute to the fantastic design of the packaging, and recycle the paper bag in a meaningful way as well. 🙂

You will need the following materials: Artblock sheet, Singapore Zoo paper bag (or coloured paper and assorted pictures of zoo animals), scissors, glue.

1. With the scissors, trim out an uppercase Z and two letter O’s from the paper bag. I tried my best to maximize the number of animals I could get from the bag on top of cutting out the letters.  The whole bag was used to make two sets, one each for DS and DD. I also added some more animal pictures salvaged from an old sticker book.

2. Paste the letters onto the artblock sheet.

3. Paste on the animals…and you’re done.
