Upcycled Valentine’s Day Bags

Since I’ve converted to a Near-O Waste lifestyle, I’ve totally been rethinking my classroom! One of our first Near-O Waste projects was making Valentine’s Day Bags out of old gift bags, cardboard packaging, and newspaper. My students cut hearts and glued them onto some white paper bags that I had leftover from selling puppets. Not only was I able to shrink my paper stash at home, but my students made some really sweet and unique bags to fill with love… and reuse in the future!

Gift bags are perfect for cutting hearts because the edge is already folded! Yes, I realize I could just reuse them as what they already are- gift bags… but I want to get gift bags out of my house and find alternative (Near-O Waste) ways to wrap!
