WOYWW - bags!

Helloooooo, long time no WOYWW (click the link if you're curious to know what the acronym stands for). Anyway. It's Horace here today making something for nothing again. We do like our free or using up stash makes here at The House of Bears.

So, you can see a paper bag, more bags to the right, scissors, a bone folder, the back of my head......

I might just be making a paper bag book. We've been collecting the paper bags given out with various shopping, and Tesco now bring our home delivery fruit and veg in large paper bags too. Wilbear insists we have our five a day so the Tesco bags are in plentiful supply here. ( other supermarkets are available but may not supply paper bags! )

Anyway, so far all I have to show for my morning's efforts are a pile of what looks like it needs to go in the recycling, so I'd better get crafting before Wilbear does just that. I'll post the results when I'm done.


With love from the bears.


  1. Hi Bears, nice to see you again. Good on Tesco for gong over to paper bags. My DIL has Tesco deliver her shopping, and I was extremely shocked to see just how many carrier bags they used! I use Tesco, but take my own Hessian bags- carrier bags are an absolute blight! . Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #43 xxx

  2. WoWza - great idea and well done to Tesco for giving paper baggies :-)
    I look forward to seeing this one develop :-D
    IKE xxxx

  3. Great idea for those paper bags. I hoard them for a microwave caramel corn recipe and nothing else works. I just read that CA is doing away with plastic bags and I am so glad....hate the darn things.

    Looking forward to seeing your book(s) when your finished.

  4. I'm presuming this is a supermarket chain you are talking about, we don't have Tescos here and a paper bag book this is very interesting Bears.

  5. Hi Bears happy WOYWW...I welcomed Louie bear to my home this week (birthday gift from my family) and he may just find his way into my craft room to watch of the 'goings on'. Not many paper bags here in OZ just the ones they supply for your mushrooms, but it's a great idea - so looking foaward to seeing your finished book. Cheers RobynO#40

  6. You're a busy bear this week, I look forward to seeing your book!
