So, I had to wrap this box of healthy drink stuff they make from potatoes in Russia wink wink  Wink for my DH and I thought, hey I know one of our few remaining paper grocery bags and a bow left over from last years cast offs, recylced bag + reused ribbon = FABULOUS package!


Not very imaginative maybe, but but it looked great under the tree!

Not pictured are the cones made from funny papers filled with candy and the fabric grocery tote from my favorite store used as wrapping for the mirthfairy's hoard of gifts.

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

The plain wrap with red wording and pictures tied with the fancy, glittery bow looks awesome!  Great way to upcycle.

Well that's much fancier than how my household uses the TJ bags. They just get turned into compost holding bags for the "food plus" recycling bin.
