Upcycling paper bags

So, someone gave me a packet of caramel sweets - you know, caramel on the outside, a filling of some sort on the inside. Each piece came wrapped in a pretty square of coloured paper which I noticed, had a nice crinkled texture. It seemed like a pity to throw them away, so I re-deployed them towards a recycled art project! :-)

They turned out to be just what I needed to decorate a large and sturdy paper bag which could definitely be re-used as a gift bag, but for the hotel logo running across it. The coloured caramel wrappers turned out to be the perfect camouflage! :)
