Recycled Food Box Gift Bags

We've found a great way to recycle old cracker and pasta boxes! Just cover them with patterned paper - either wrapping paper or scrapbooking paper.

Wrap it like you would wrap a present but instead, tuck the top of the paper into the box and tape it down with double-sided tape.

To make the handles, punch holes with a paper punch and thread a length of ribbon through.

Knot the ends of the ribbon on the inside of your bag-box to keep the handles from slipping out of place.

Everyone loves handmade touches to their gifts, and this is an especially nice touch for the environmentally concious.
