A typical scenario: I’m downtown and realize that I’ve just run out of soy milk, so I stop at Trader Joes, and as is common, I don’t have my cloth shoppers with me. My eyes turn downward. The guilt and shame of paper bagging envelope me as I leave the store.
So what’s a gal to do with her amassed collection of paper bags? Why, turn them into paper! To make your own recycled stock follow these three simple steps.
1) Gingerly tear off the paper handles.
2) Cut your bag into 11″ x 8.5″ sheets.
3) Iron your sheets flat
Quick, easy, and resourceful, use these sheets to print out coupons, bills, receipts, business statements and more!
