Shopping Bag Art

Sometimes this blog is an excellent way to help me feel like I’m not the only crazy gal out there.  For instance, I used to wonder if I was the only one who saved store shopping bags because the paper was so pretty.  Well, I’m not!  In fact, Anu at Nalle’s House fell so hard for a shopping bag that she turned it into art!


Anu loved the rough black and white stripes on this Marimekko shopping bag.  Looking for some more art to add to one of her collages, Anu realized that the graphic print on this was the type of thing she had in mind.  The transformation was simple:  she cut out a rectangle from the shopping bag, and slipped it into a basic frame.  Free art!  Doesn’t it look awesome?


See how Anu made this art from a shopping bag at Nalle’s House.

  1. Pretty things (even old shopping bags) are hard to toss, aren’t they? 😉 Thanks so much for the feature. Have a great weekend!
