Bag Origami...

I take used grocery bags in at Snap Snap, in fact...I encourage people to bring in their bags...it's the ultimate way to recycle really. Give them to me...I'll keep passing them along...

Save a plastic tree for heavens sake!!

So, I have all sorts of wonderful people dropping their bags by on any given week. Usually they are bags stuffed into bags any which way...but someone dropped off some bags that were folded into little triangles...

I mean, these things are really folded up! So much so, that I struggle a little trying to get them open to fill them up, just one little shake won't do it...they are so very folded that I can't even begin to figure out how this person folded them to begin with, I mean...I might have a better chance if I was a teenager again, and these were notes I was trying to pass someone.

Who has such time to sit and fold up their old grocery bags? I wonder if they would come by the house and help me clean? Or at least fold my laundry for me? Or even come by and teach me how to do this with my own bags...you know, in case I have a few hours out of my life to spare?

You want to know
the most amazing thing about this entire bag art? Whomever it was that dropped these off dropped off two full bags of these folded bags.

I am amazed.

Wow. Maybe they were really bored. Good luck using them! ;)

Maybe they were playing football with them. I remember the boys in school doing that with folded paper.

We recycle our bags too by using them to handle icky things like cat poop and dead rats and such. I keep a bagful of them on one of my cabinet doorknobs.

Your Sunday visit to the new cafe looked like a blast! Rich did great with the pictures too.

It's easy to do! My mom taught us how to do it--she learned from neighbors when they first moved to Venezuela. We've used this method for years. Of course, now, no more plastic bags. Sigh, I'll miss folding. (snarf)

I bet my eldest could do it! I'll ask him when he gets home and see if I can't convince him to let me videotape then post online.
