Capri Sun Lunch Bags

On the capri sun box it has an advertisement for Terracycle, which is a recycling company who uses the drink pouches from capri sun to make items like backpacks, purses, pencil pouches, lunch bags, etc. I thought it looked easy enough and did a little research on the internet about how to make my own lunch bags using the pouches. There is lots of information out there and many different ways to make these bags. This is the ehow site I improvised my pattern from. This was a simple way that worked for me and the kids loved it! Now they have cute lunch bags that were really cheap with a little elbow grease and recycling. Terracycle has lots of information on recycling these type products. I think it is a great project, if you have the motivation!

Way to go! I've seen sling bags and little clutch purses made too- they're really cool. I bet the kids love them!
