Bags and Crafts: Summer Edition!

We love to get creative, especially when it comes to reusing our plastic bags! From packing lunch for the next day to cleaning up after a pet, plastic bags are easily reused and recycled every day. But one of our favorite ways to reuse them is in arts and crafts.

With summer officially upon us, Matsutake shares a great tutorial for creating fun lanterns that can brighten up your home using 100% reusable (and recyclable) plastic bags! Because these lanterns are made out of plastic bags, they’re completely waterproof and make a great addition to your outdoor decorations.

What other crafty ways do you reuse your plastic bags? Make sure to share your creations by tweeting us @BagTheBan or tagging us on Facebook!
