My daughter and I made these plastic bag dispensers.  We use them by our small trash bins in each room, in the car, and when we go camping.  Never know when you'll need a bag.  Super handy.  Just thought we'd share the idea.

If you couldn't guess it, they're supposed to resemble a magician's hat with bunny ears sticking out.

They're completely constructed out of paper towel or tp tubes.  The large holds 10, while the small one holds 5 bags.  The bags are interlocked through the handle loops so that when you pull one out the next pops up.

We just recently came up with the idea of the magician's hat.  The daughter used to draw bunnies on them where the bag handles were the ears.  I just love this zombie bunny she drew.  Smiley  You can read more about how they work and see more pics on my craft blog here.  Thanks for lookin'.  I enjoy comments and would love to hear if you make your own bag dispensers!

Brilliant, tell your daughter she's inspired!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thanks AD and MW! 

Daughter has suggested we make a face or some eyes peeking out of the hat rim.  I'll post an update if we try it.

This is such a great idea.  Much better than just stuffing bags into each other until they're ready to burst.

LOL!  We still have a few of those.  Smiley  But, we set time aside every once in awhile when tube stocks are low to stuff them.  When the tubes become empty they are stored in the pantry with the spare full ones until the next go round.  Works pretty well.  I do have to say the tubes are easier to stack than the giant bags o' bags.  Smiley
