Gift wrapping using H&M shopping bag.

Do you hate spending tons on money on gift wrapping papers? I do. I actually stopped buying wrapping papers for a while now. I use kraft papers, newspapers, construction papers, and regular white papers for gift wrapping and I constantly looking for ways to creatively decorate the gifts. Check out some of my gift wrapping posts here, here and here.

This time, I’m recycling plastic shopping bags. I love the gold polka dots on this H&M bag.

…so I cut it up and use it as I normally would papers.

It’s a little sheer but you wouldn’t have this problem if your gift box underneath was solid. I don’t really mind that you can almost see the writing on the box.

I added some baker twine and a gift tag and we’re good to go. Check out how I got the gift tags in this post

Here is another gift wrapped with the other half of the bag. Some purple silk ribbon brighten it up a whole lot too! 

Save money on wrapping papers this season!

DIY Circle Zip Earbud Pouch

Hey guys! 

I found this awesome tutorial from this blog a while back and finally got a chance to try it out for myself. If you check out Erin’s post, it has an excellent step by step instruction with pictures but I took my pictures anyways. Here they are…

I used Erin’s pattern. You should too if you want to make this. They’re perfect!

I skipped the topstitching at the end because I happened to like the way it looks without it.

If you haven’t noticed, I used my scrap fabric that’s left from this reupholstery project. I had to piece together a bunch of pieces to make the circles but it came out great anyways :-)

This would make great hand-made holiday gift, don’t you think!?
