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.
