Christmas Gift Bag Recycling

Today is my monthly post on the MOSD blog. Please go check it out and leave me some love! For my project, I reused a gift store shopping bag to create a Christmas gift bag.

I didn't want to use the twisted paper handles that the bag came with, so I just cut off the top of the bag. I cut a piece of 8x8 paper down to fit the width of the bag, and then cut a strip to adhere across the top. I punched the edge of this strip with a border punch for added style. I adhered both of these papers to the bag. Next, I adhered patterned paper to the MOSD chipboard Postage Stamp Build A Book page, which becomes the focal point and matt for the sentiment. On top of the covered chipboard page, I added a torn piece of sheet music, and then a chipboard frame with sentiment.

To replace the handles that I removed, I cut holes in the top with my Crop A Dile and then knotted a length of ribbon through each hole. Now I have pretty handles that match my bag.
With just a couple of days left before Christmas, this is a project that you can quickly put together using supplies that you already have.
