I saw this on the Martha Stewart a couple weeks ago and vowed to try it. I think I’m like a lot of people… I keep my shopping bags in our linen closet, hoping in vain that at some point in time I’m going to need 50 bags to carry stuff in (lol). Aside from the holidays when some of the bags get used for transporting gifts, these bags just get thrown out every year. This is a REALLY simple way to not only cut back on some of that waste, but to save some money while making your gifts look chic. I wrapped my mother’s day gift for my mom and my cousin’s birthday gift this week so I only took pictures of these two bows, but I have made a lot of them. Play around with the prints and colors and materials and you can make beautiful bows that are thoughtful, unique, inexpensive and friendly to the planet!
