Materials

  • Recycled chip bags

Tools

  • Duct Brand Duct Tape, in colors of choice

Basic Supplies

scissors, black marker, paper towels

Directions

STEP 1

  • For single chip bag tote, cut chip bag open on seams, creating flat rectangle with inside facing up. Use paper towels to wipe off rectangle, removing crumbs or oils.

STEP 2

  • Cut front panels by cutting down sides, cutting top and bottom edges evenly. (Note: Two panels of same-size are needed for each tote.) Use side panels for handles.

STEP 3

  • Tear or cut duct tape strips. Press strips on open panels, slightly overlapping edges. Cover top and bottom edges of panels. Position bottom of panels together; add tape along overlapping edge.

STEP 4

  • For handles, fold side panels into 2”-wide strips. Fold strips into thirds; tape together. Tape handles onto top of both panels.

STEP 5

  • For larger tote, join four snack-size chip bags together, using one side and four panels (for back). Follow steps as before, creating larger-size tote.
