Getting ready for some off line events means I need to price some items. I love crafting with brown paper bags and wanted to use them some how in my pricing. I figured my re-usable shopping bags and produce bags were the perfect place to add some brown bag labels.
I cut up a shopping bag, by removing the handles, and the bottom. Next each bag has a seam, cutting at that point either on a side or the middle back. So I had one large piece of brown paper.
I then ironed just to remove some of the biggest creases, or flatten a little more, you can't really remove creases but you can manage them more.
Next, simply cut into 8.5 x 11 inch sheets, I was able to get 4 from a single bag. I was able (with the consent of my husband) put these through our laser printer.
I just used Word to create my labels, print, cut and use a staple to attach to my items.
Be sure to recycle what you don't use or save for another crafting project!
