Make Gift Bags Using An Old Street Directory !
This will be my last post of uses for an old street directory, I hope you all enjoyed the different ways of recycling an old street directory, and use some or all of the ideas to recycle your own. So this one is making gift bags which are very easy to make again I have done a tutorial for making gift bags using old news papers, but I think these ones look a little nicer. Here is the link to the tutorial I did previously http://simpleliving-sherrie.blogspot.com/2010/08/news-paper-gift-bags.html
These gift bags I have just folded over the tops but you could add ribbons /jute/paper to make handles. So easy to make and they look great. Here are some others uses for using an old street directory, use them in scrap booking I don't do scrap booking but think it is a great budget idea as I've seen the prices of some of the papers they use. Make lolly bags, seed packets, Xmas crackers, line your draws and shelves,make paper chains,paper lanterns, sewing patterns, paper templates,cover school books,origami projects,I'm sure there are so many more great ideas. Does any one have any other great ideas to share with us, if so please post and tell us. If i think of any more ideas I will post them !
