Bags, bags, bags: so many bags!

I had these in mind for Christmas, but these are great for anytime… They’re just handy to keep around, and even better because they are a conversation-starter on their own (before the receiver even has a chance to peek inside)!

These few are made from tan plastic grocery bags with other plastics inserted inside the layers … for instance, the red netting/mesh is from an apple bag, and I’ve also used part of a bread bag for some other color variation. (The bows on the outside are from ribbons that I previously received on gifts, and have re-purposed here.) The little handles are really cute, if you ask me!

I’ll also be making some matching mini-envelopes to match, with a little blank card inside, on which to write some merry greetings. I was thinking of listing these at my Etsy Store, just for the heck of it. Perhaps. You never know.

    Nice recyled handicrafts. I’m glad to have come across this blog. Earlier on, I came across another video about recycled stuff- it’s about recycled pvc handbags. You should see it. http://youtu.be/_-j74UKurr0
