What Can You Do with a Paper Bag?
National Paper Bag Day
-- American inventor, Francis Wolle, received credit for his patent of the first paper bag machine in 1852. The paper bag manufacturing machine was also patented by William Goodale in Massachusetts, on July 12, 1859. Margaret E. Knight became known as the mother of the grocery bag after she designed the square, flat bottom and the machine that would fold and paste them in 1870.

Read: What Can You Do with a Paper Bag?, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
-- With a little imagination, the answer is plenty! Armed with scissors, tape, and glue, it's easy to turn an ordinary paper bag into an extraordinary hat, wig, mask or crown. Simple step-by-step instructions show readers how to make a golden crown, a curly Baroque wig, Perseus's winged helmet, a pharaoh's headdress, George Washington's wig, a Japanese geisha hairdo, an African mask, and sixteen other imaginative designs. An engaging activity book for both home and classroom, What Can You Do with a Paper Bag?, inspired by works of art from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will provide hours of educational and entertaining dress-up fun.
