Need a quick and easy thrifty project? This one is exactly that.
After going through all of my Christmas gift wrap supplies the only thing I could come up with that would be nice to have was a couple of extra gift bags. So I went to Walmart and picked up two plain red gift bags for 98¢ each.
When I got home I went through my stack of Christmas cards and selected two card fronts I really liked. I trimmed the edges and glued one to the front of each bag. Doesn't get any simpler than that, for sure!
|Love this one! So cute!|
I had a plain white gift bag my daughter had received and thought I could recycle. The gift giver had written her name on the bag, but I found a card that was perfect to glue on and covered it right up.
|One recycled gift bag and one recycled Christmas card!|
Now we have three more bags to add to our supplies for the upcoming Christmas season. I love that we recycled three cards and a previously used bag too. Of course some of you craftier folks could totally decorate and embellish these more with ribbons, lace and trim, glitter glue, pretty much anything.
My plan when I use them will be to add a stick on bow and one of my handmade gift tags. Other than that this project took me less than 15 minutes and I was pretty dang happy with that.
|Wouldn't this look cute on one of these bags?|
Now on to the next project!
