Paper Bag Crafts

Great looking and yet inexpensive crafts using regular brown paper bags. You can get 50 of these for $1 at your local dollar store. I am sure that these examples will get your creative juices flowing.

(Please pin from the original source)

1. Pretty Paper Bag Flowers. Can you believe these are from paper bags? Leave it up to Martha Stewart to come up with this one.

2. Paper Bag Luminaries. Can you imagine these lined up along a walk way at night. So pretty!

3. Paper Bag Christmas Card. You can inexpensively whip up a few of these in no time for any occasion.

4. More Paper Bag Flowers. How pretty.

5. Paper Bag Ribbon. Wow!

6. Paper Bag Journal Covers. A new take on covering a composition notebook.

 7. Paper Bag Decor. This would be great for birthday parties.

8. Paper Bag Lanterns.

9. Paper Bag Scrapbook album. This is one of my favorite ways to reuse paper bags. Just remember to use photocopies of your photos as paper bags are not acid free but you can spray the bag as well with a product like Krylon's Make It Acid Free.

 10. Paper Bag Journal.

 11. Brown Paper Floors. This was made from the kraft paper on the roll but still, look at this. Stunning!

 12. Paper Bag Fall Leaf. What a cute embellishment.
