Recycled shopping bags- as gift bags

Gift bags are a great invention. They are a wonderful way to present someone with a gift, and the bags are usually sturdy enough to be reused.

I had some shopping bags that were made from recycled materials and I thought it would  be great to recycle and reuse them again. Yesterday, I spent a delightful hour with my daughter decorating bags to be used as goody bags for her birthday party.

These are the bags that we started with.

We used paper, ribbons, stickers and buttons that we had at home to decorate the bags. As we are going to use these bags for the same event, we wanted the bags to have the same look, but at the same time be slightly different for each child.  This project was certainly a great way to use what we had at home to make something plain look a little prettier.
