From Marjorie - "I thought of this project because I have 9 grandchildren coming over and we exchange gifts amongst the Aunts and Uncles also. I thought this idea would be great to keep everyone's gift separate and not all mixed up with others.
I took a brown shopping bag and folded the top down twice (inside) making like a hem. I punched two holes on each side in the hem for the twine handles. Some bags have store names on so what I did than was to cover that area with Christmas wrapping paper. I cut out pictures on the wrapping paper in different sizes and shapes and glued than in different areas on the bag. I marked the child's name on the bag.
This is one way to use wrapping paper that is small or left over from wrapping other gifts. So don't throw away paper, even after opening gifts. This would be great for other occasions also. The paper is so pretty so why waste it, right? That is a great way to recycle paper and you have a nice looking bag for the kids to enjoy."
