They were selling them at a fantastic price of 3 for $1.00, so it inspired us to stock up and revisit some of our own projects using this very versatile material.
We dressed up some bulletin boards here in the studio for our upcoming workshops, and are going to whip up a little stockpile of reusable gift bags to use for holiday gift-giving. (Instructions found here!)
I simply cut open the bag so it would lay flat, mounted it with spray adhesive and then primitively framed it out with salvaged wood scraps.
There are so many creative uses for these beauties, especially at this time of year. They’re a rustic decorative touch for Fall/Thanksgiving. You could create pillows, tablerunners, chair covers, etc…
If you haven’t been to your local ReStore lately…stop in and see what they have in stock…it’s a fabulous resource for reclaimed goods, the inventory is everchanging which makes it a bit of a treasure hunt each time, and the prices are always great. And it goes without saying but you’re also helping to support a fabulous organization.
Cheers to more of life’s amazing leftovers and the businesses committed to distributing them!
