During the live stream this week, after showing the latest issue of Greencraft Magazine from Stampington and Company, I used the article “Brown Paper Bag – Packages, Pouches & Envelopes” as my inspiration to recycle paper bags into fun painted envelopes. I decided to paint them before adding stitching and a fun closure. I love how they turned out! I hope you give it a try.


If you recycled paper bags into new, fun items, I'd love to see them. Please tweet photos @BarbOwenDesigns.
