BagBox

I had a couple of wine boxes that I didn't want to throw away because they were so sturdy. This idea came about by accident actually because one of the boxes ended up where I unpack groceries. I just stuffed a plastic grocery bag in the top hole of the wine box to get it out of my way. Gravity did it's job and the bag fell to the bottom where I saw it poking out the hole at the bottom where the spigot was. Pulled it out and Voila! Sparked me a new idea and project. I've made several of these for gifts. It fits just about anywhere and keeps those bags contained. It holds tons of 'em! When you put the bags in one at a time, they come out one at a time every time! p.s. I covered them with a generic contac paper I already had and used cards and magazine pictures for decoration. I then covered the entire thing with shipping tape! Very easy!

    Great idea Robin. I love finding new uses for what would otherwise become trash. One wouldn't have to take so much time to make these useful. I'd probably just spray paint them and call it done, but I'm sure you had fun picking all the things you put on

    Nothing wrong with buying wine in boxes. We do quite often. Sometimes in the big jugs. Sometimes more expensive bottles. Just depends. I like that you reuse the bladders too. I never thought to do that. Great idea~!

    I was tickled really that they finally allowed me to 'turn wine to water' HAH! Thanks for your sweet comment XD

    You're very welcome Robin. What a beautiful sail boat you have. We just bought a boat this evening. Not a sail boat. I couldn't tell you anything about it or I'd sound a fool. I know nothing about boats but they float in water. I've only been on small

    This was our last SuperMoom...off the dock in St. Augustine...not to be confused with a BlueMoon which was just last night!

    Beautiful. I'm not sure what you call it, but tonight as we were coming up over a hill just as the moon was coming up it looked huge! The further we drove toward it the further in the sky it became and the smaller it looked, but it was absolutely huge

    Photo taken off the Poop deck or as Cap'n calls it the 'aft' Me being the Giligan that I am...I just love to not have to think about it which end I'm on ~<|;-D

    That will be me. Or I'll say drivers side, front or back of the boat. LOL I didn't remember the drivers side being on the "British side of the boat.
