Recycled gift bags

Ok, so for every time I remember to take my reusable bags to the store there are 10x I forget them and must get paper bags. What's a girl to do?! Recycle them into super chic paper clutch gift bags that's what! This is my new project and I have to say that my husband was a skeptic when I spoke of the idea, however he's been pleasantly surprised by the turn out! We are already trying to think of other excuses to use them :)
Pretty self explanatory. Cut, fold, stitch, stamp or embellish as you like!!


  1. i use my brown bags as grease catchers when i make cookies or bacon! this is cute too! what a way to wrap a gift in a pinch when all you have are xmas bags!

  2. We just stopped wrapping things since we thought it was such a waste of paper. This gives so much more personality to giving gifts. I made some hand stamped ones today- they rock. Photos soon to come!
