Kung Fu Puppetry
I bought brown paper lunch bags to make puppets for my kid. They only come in packs of 100 so I thought, "What the hell do I do with 100 paper bags?" Well, obviously...make 100 puppets. Here are puppets # 1 and 2, Pai Mei the evil white eyebrow priest and Shin Wong the shaggy-haired kung fu hero. I tried to make Shin Wong look like Bruce Lee but making a paper bag look like Bruce Lee is harder than it sounds. I originally just made Pai Mei, but when I informed my son he is a naughty guy, he demanded a good guy so they can fight.
I have 64 more ideas so far as I make more I will post them as well!
