Giftwrap Challenge: Plastic Bags

I'm not buying any wrapping paper this year. Stop by every Monday until New Years for an easy gift wrap idea featuring everyday items.

Despite my best efforts to bring my own reusable shopping bags, I always accumulate plastic bags. Always. They are good for scooping kitty litter, but not much else. What to do? Make some bows! Or pom-poms, rather. Click here for the tutorial. Yes, I am recycling an old post! Forgive me -- I am with family back in Virginia for short break. Lots of fun and leftover turkey. Lots of new posts and pictures to follow soon :)


  1. Not a bad looking bow at that.

  2. Hope you had fun in Virginia! We were there with my family as well. (BTW: I always did love your plastic bag poms!)

    These pom poms are awesome. Thank you for the link to the tutorial. My brother is a pilot, so I use a stack of his old flight maps as wrapping paper for almost everything. I like this idea because I can try something new, but stay with my nontraditional wrapping style :)

  4. Oh Leslie, I didn't know! We could have compared geography and seen about connecting in person. Next time!
