I always recycle gift bags or store shopping bags for gifts...I just add my own embellishments to them, even as simple as adding ribbon which is also recycled from packages I received.

I love this site. Keeps me busy and I get great ideas and see some new ways to use things, Thanks. Also this salsa recipe is really good. Is in my opinion mild enough for most tastes. But it is simple fast and tasteee
