Wordless Wednesday: Waiting for Upcycling

Brightly colored gift bags waiting for upcycling into gifts for shoe boxes.  Images of one of the finished products, a Paper Pocket, and a link to instructions are below.  Many of the children around the world who receive shoe boxes full of gifts from Operation Christmas Child desperately need paper and pencils and other school supplies--it is often one of their favorite gifts. I thought repurposing gift bags to hold the paper would brighten their lives a little.
