Upcycled Bowls

Upcycling refers to the process of turning waste products into something usable. This is not a new concept necessarily — remember your grandparents never throwing anything away? It’s definitely a new word for the old idea. Upcycling decreases the need to create new products out of raw materials and decreases the amount of usable materials headed into the waste stream.

Based on the weaving children do with gum wrappers this idea is of crafting bags to make bowls. Wash and save chip bags which are waterproof, colorful, pretty and free and beautiful results can happen.
