Upcycled Crafts: Springtime Bags

March 8, 2014 at 4:30 am Leave a comment

We don’t know about you, but we’re in a hurry for springlike weather here in Central Texas! In hopes of bringing on warmer weather, we featured Springtime gift bags at our last Upcycle This! Craft night. It’s fairly simple, take a large piece of paper, such as an old poster or map, and wrap it around something, like a shoebox or a book. We had spring themed scrapbook punches on hand as well as many different kinds of scrap paper. Here are the creative results of what our participants came up with:

Thanks again to those that participated! Next month we’ll be featuring woven baskets for Upcycle This. Be sure to check back for more craftiness.
