A Sack that doesn't Suck

If you've visited my blog before, you know
how many times I've recycled produce sacks.
I've turned them into flowers, hairpieces and

What do you know? I have a few more
to transform from blah to TADA!

Step 1: Cut into a rectangle & remove
the plastic labels.

Step 2: Tape the edges with printed or solid-colored
packing tape. You might need to reinforce
the stickiness-factor with hot glue.

Step 3: Gather the edges so that the flat sack
lifts up to become a box. Attach the meeting
edges with hot glue.

Use binder clips to keep the edges in place
as the glue dries.

Remove the binder clips and TADA!
you've got a box!

I'll use it as a station for garlic...

...or for those nifty coffee pods.

Or a place where snacks can hang out
until they're gobbled up by the family.
