Turn Your Food Bag into a Wedding Gift Bag

Recycling is one of the basis of the ‘gypsy crafting’ – it’s fun and it challenges your imagination. From big projects (up-cycled furniture) to small ones (re-purposed playing cards), recycled art is just as rewarding as creating something from scratch. With a little help from Tattered Angels paints, 7gypsies elements and Canvas Corp fabrics and paper, you can give a second life to almost anything. Our Crew member, Shel C did exactly that with a food bag she got from Olive Garden and turned it into a stylish wedding gift bag with just a couple of simple steps!

‘Nothing is more rewarding then re-using an item that was to be discarded. Canvas Corp Brands products are great for adding texture and shimmer to any up-cycling project. This beautiful wedding gift bag used to be a food bag brought home from a restaurant. Some collage with papers and some shimmer with mists and… ta dah! It has a new life.’ – shares her love for recycled art Shel.

I am a mixed media crafter with passion for layers and textures. Architextures are my new love and I can feel the relationship going from strength to strength in the foreseeable future. I have worked with CCB since January 2017 and it felt like home straight away. The team is amazing and the crafting products are even better, which makes it perfect combination and an amazing place to be.
