I had quite a few shopping paper bags that I kept back at home and keeping them for a long time isn't good, because sooner or later, some creature/animal will make your saved paper bags as their home. Especially roaches. Lol. I don't know why, roaches just loves anything paper, including un-used newspapers. If you kept them for too long, they'll infested by roaches, ants, molds, dusts and the like. Before it turns into a monster, you better think of something to do with em'.
I've used the old box/ paper bags to wrap a gift:
|Here's what you'll need. Scissor, old box, old paper bag and cellotape. |
Sorry, cellotape ain't in this picture :p
|Take out unnecessary thing/anything inside the old box. Lol.|
Because you'll need to fill it with your presents
|Cut all sides of the paper bag/ shopping bag|
|It will look like this after you cut all the sides of the paper bag/ shopping bag|
|I think it's lucky that the size of the paper bag 'fits' nicely with the gift box|
|Wrap your gift box with the cut up paper bag/ shopping bag. You|
can either use cellotape, double sided tapes or extra strong glue to 'paste' it to
your gift box
(so that the paper bag won't come off from the gift box)
|How my wrapped up gift box looks like from the sides after it's finish|
|How it looks like from the front and back. You can even tie a ribbon|
around the box to make it looks like a errrr gift?
|The complete product. Finish! I stick a small wishing note at the corner|
of the box hehe
Lastly, after all that work, don't forget to fill in your presents inside the box! Lol.
