  2. Assemble your Whale: Open your Creativity Street® Kraft Bag and fill 2/3 full with shredded or crumpled paper. Gather the end of the bag to create the whale’s fluke (tail) and secure with a rubber band.

  3. To hide the rubber band cut a 1/2" x 4" strip (3/8" x 3" strip for Mini Bags) from construction paper. Wrap over rubber band and glue.
