a bag made from recycled materials
I wanted to make something out of recycled materials so I came up with this bag!
gather all materials
cut magazine into strips and tri-fold each strip gluing the folds down so that the strip lays flat
begin weaving the strips together gluing down the overlaps. try to keep the strips as close together as possible so that there aren't big holes in the bag
after you have a perfect square, repeat steps 2-3 for the 2nd side of the bag
after 2 squares are made, hot glue the edges together leaving one edge for the opening
cut card stock so that it is the length of one edge and width to fold and create a border on both sides and hot glue it on the edge of the bag
repeat step 6 on the other 2 edges that have been glues together
for the open edge, use two separate pieces of stock instead of one folded piece
create two small holes in the top of each side of the bag to run yarn through as a strap... I hot glued the yarn on the inside of the bag for a little extra reinforcement
tie the yarn, grab your bag and go!
