When I bought something at a store recently, the clerk handed me my purchase in a bag made from a newspaper.
I liked it very much and had to make some more—thus today's DIY recycled newspaper project: gift bags made from the Wall Street Journal. You can vary the dimensions, of course, but here's what I used to create a bag that's 5" tall, 4.5" wide, and 3" deep. Stack two sheets of newspaper on top of each other. This will be a two-ply bag for extra sturdiness. Cut out a rectangle that's 15.5" wide and 8.25" tall.
Fold a flap 1.25" down from the top. Cut two pieces of cardstock or chipboard to 4.25" x 1", then glue them on the widest two panels just under the top fold. Put glue on the outside of the 0.5" tab and bring the left-most panel over to form the body of the bag, aligning the cut edge of the panel with the folded edge of the flap. Upend the bag so the 2" flap is now up. Put glue on both flaps and fold them inward to form the bottom of the bag. DIY: Recycled T-Shirt Tote Bag. Say YES! to hoboken: DIY Purple Striped Market Tote. Last year I made a striped beach tote and this year I found some perfect purple striped canvas weight fabric at my local fabric outlet for only $4 a yard and knew I wanted to make another version.
Travel Accessories: Plenty of Pockets Tote. When you're on the road, doesn't it always seems to be the ordinary, everyday things you are suddenly in desperate need of: gum, nail clippers, your headphones?
I get a little panicky, certain I've left behind the most obvious items... as if perhaps I'm on an arctic expedition and won't see civilization for weeks. But the opportunity for replenishment doesn't matter; I want my stuff close at hand. Carabiner Keychain Mod: Stop dropping your keys. I used to keep my keys on a standard carabiner, which I could clip to my belt loop.
Most of the time, that worked fine. But every so often, when I unclipped the carabiner from my belt loop, one of the key rings would slip off without me noticing. I had spare keys, so such events were really just a minor nuisance. Then, I got a car with an (exorbitantly priced) keyless entry remote. One day the inevitable happened, I reached for my keys and the ring with the remote was gone. Easy DIY transforming purse-backpack. If you are anything like me, you're tired of buying stuff and using it for a few months at which point it falls apart and you need to buy a new one.
That's the story with me and backpacks. They are all made out of this really easy to tear material which only lasts PART of a semester at best, before I need a new one. I've come to realize purses are made to carry small stuff but are limited as far as long journeys, whereas backpacks are made for long distances, but tear apart easy, so I thought why not combine the two? I take this backpack / purse hiking with me all the time and its lasted much longer than any of my backpacks, so I thought I'd show you how to make one! It's very simple, and took me less than 20 minutes to make. How to make nail polish.
