If you're tired of paying for Disney themed gift bags or other lame new $6.00 gift bags, this cheap and creative instructable is for you. Your friends will love you for it - because you are just too cool.

Step 1: Not Too Girly Version

This is an example of what a map, duct tape and paper clips can look like as a gift bag. Try using the covers of Cabela's catalogue, Guns and Ammo, Field and Stream, etc. to make gift bags look a little more masculine.

Anyway - let's get started!
Pack trail mix in it and take it hiking with you. When you are finished with it, use it for a carry-out-of-the-woods trash bag. You can reuse a cereal bag for packing trail mix and as a trash bag at the conclusion of your hike or walk. Also us for snack storage, to pack away frozen food or as a replacement of wax paper. http://blog.greenlivingeveryday.com/2011/11/05/Way<br><br>www.greenlivingeveryday.com

Really clever idea! Can't believe I never thought of this before?! I'll be saving my pennies and pounds on having to buy gift bags again!
This is a fantastic idea, recycling is the way forward and it's amazing at what can be done now which saves us all a lot of money. <br><br><a href="http://www.electricalcontractors247.co.uk">Electrical Contractors</a>
