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.
I actually made this for my honey for our anniversary a couple of years ago, but with Valentine's Day fast approaching, I thought I'd share. This is so easy to make, but it has a lot of impact -- who wouldn't love to get this? I want to say right now that I am not claiming this idea as original. Unfortunately, I made it over 2 years ago and now cannot find the post/site/etc. where I found the inspiration. As I recall, the one I saw was far more elaborate than mine. If you have seen this before, please feel free to post links in your replies.
