Hopefully you haven't thrown out last year's calendar yet, because here is some more treasure from trash! This idea came from my mother and they are so easy to make. Even the handles are from recycled material, they were crocheted using plastic shopping bags cut in inch-wide strips.
These cute little gift bags can also be made from scrapbook paper, heavy weight gift wrap, or you can stamp your own design on plain paper. In fact, these are perfect for stamping since you start out with a flat, unfolded piece of paper.

- Page from an old calendar
