Christmas gift bags

The Vineyard Hotel in Cape Town packs a 'breakfast to go' for me when I have early meetings.  They pack my fruit, yoghurt and muffin into lovely carry bags for easy grab and go travel.  The bags are already made from recycled paper.  I up-cycled these bags as Christmas gift bags for the Scrap Addicts.  I love using Christmas ornaments as decorations on gifts.  I'm a real 'greenie' and someone who recycles a lot, so my friends and family know that they may sometimes get gifts wrapped in 'strange' ways.



  1. Oh wow Alison, what a wonderful way to recycle. These are so festive and the receivers will be delighted with them.

  2. That is really a wonderful idea. I love how the bags turned out.

  3. I LOVED my up-cycled Christmas bag ... I have up-cycled it once again and it now houses Connor's Christmas gifts. The bags are such lovely quality and what you did to them made them super special!!!!
