Do your part!

Well since Earth day is today I thought the perfect craft to share would be one in which you could use items already used or at home.  I made this adorable paper bag wreath.  I used the tutorial from MaryJanes and Galoshes.

Instead of using a punch I used my Cuttlebug and my Spellbinders scallopped Nestabilities.
I used a lot more lunch bags than were called for in the tutorial but I think it is entirely up to you.

And then I just used a hot glue gun to adhere them on the wreath.  Here is the finished result.

I used 3 different Martha butterfly punches.  I used vintage book paper for them.

I hope you give it a try!

Gorgeous! No where I shop gives out paper bags anymore though. I bet this would look cool using colourful magazine pages or flyers that just end up in the recycling box.

this is really beautiful. my grocer does not use brown bags either, but i always have kraft wrapping paper around that i also use as work table blotter. that could be recycled. just a suggestion. (found at michaels)
