A little trick will help you turn a drab brew bag into a nifty money-keeper

A Starbucks paper bag will either end up in some crevice at home or in the bin – so why not upcycle it into a wallet? Upcycling is a great eco-friendly solution that turns trash into something far more valuable.

Mr. Zhou, a Taiwanese advertising agent, came up with a simple idea – to upcycle the paper bag into a cost-free wallet. While Starbucks illustrates the ubiquity of the materials in this nifty hack, any high quality paper bag will do just as well.

Things needed:

Starbucks paper bag Hobby knife, blade or sharp scissors Double-sided tape

Step 1: Remove the handles of the paper bag and flatten. The less crumpled, the better.
