Really, really hope I am posting this correctly and in the right place.  But, here is my upcycled Beggin Strips gift ribbon!  Grin

(in case you cannot view the link)
I took a Beggin Strips dog treat bag (you can use any foil lined bag like a coffee bag or some candy bags) and cut the bag into strips, curled them and hot glued them together, then added double sided tape to attach to a gift.  It turns out really well and is an easy way to add a hand made touch to gifts for the holidays!

That's really cute.  Much cuter than I would have thought, based on the description!

Another fun thing to use for making bows is the plastic mesh stuff some fruit is packaged in.  I recently bought clementines and the top of the package was covered with a rectangle of red plastic mesh.  My 4-year old, whose motto is "we can do a project with that (so don't throw it out)" had to keep it.  We tied it in a knot and it ended up looking like a bow tie.  I just put a small piece of double sided tape on it and stuck it to a package we had wrapped in brown paper (grocery store bag) and decorated with dot markers (or bingo daubers).  It was festive and free and made me feel virtuous for reusing the mesh.  Saving the planet, one craft project at a time...
