Recycled Plastic Shopping Bag Holder

Our activity days group which are 8 and 9-year-old girls did an activity with empty "Clorax or Lysol" wipes containers.  We were talking about recycling and the importance of recycling and repurposing items. 

Scrapbook paper scraps were used to decorate the container.  These cute containers were repurposed and used to hold  and organize the plastic shopping bags that you get when you go grocery shopping (if you are not using your earth-friendly totes). 

In order to create these you will need an empty large Clorax wipe container, some scrapbook or patterned papers, a strong adhesive and some embellishments (I used ribbon, brads and a paper flowers).

This is how my container turned out; at the activity each girl was able to personalize her own container.
