Step 1: Get the Bald Eagle Craft Printable

Download the Free Bald Eagle Printable. You will be stapling the templates to sheets of colored paper and cutting out shapes up to 10 at a time.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Eagle Shapes

Once you have the print outs, staple them to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

Did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.

Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you’ve cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. 

Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Extra Tip: You can stack up to 8 sheets of red, white, and blue paper and cut out all of your stars at one time. Remember you can stack 8 sheets of paper (white, brown, yellow) and cut out a bunch of shapes at one time.

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will just need to glue it all together!

    1. I downloaded this project to go along with a writing about kid’s voting. We shrank it to 65% so it would fit on a piece of colored card stock to go in our kindergarten memory books. They turned out amazing! Thank you Jeannie for sharing this cute idea!

      1. What a great idea, sounds awesome! I’m glad you were able to make it work for your memory books. And thanks for leaving a comment 🙂
