Here’s How to Transform a Starbucks Paper Bag Into a Wallet

starbucks-paper-bag-wallet-2

Starbucks drinkers are a crafty bunch right? The kind of people with Pinterest pages who go to farmer’s markets and praise sustainability? Well here’s a neat little recycling trick for any Starbucks paper bags you ‘bucks-heads may have lying around: paper bag origami wallets!

Ostensibly this life hack works with any paper bag, but the Starbucks logo is what makes it Insta-worthy. All you need are a craft knife, double-sided tape, and a brown paper bag wide enough to contain a dollar bill and tall enough to fit the bill after you’ve folded the bag in on itself three times. Then, as per the directions of Youtuber thebigbluevan, just tear a few flaps open, tear some stuff off, fold some stuff in, and tape some stuff together, et voila, an entirely Urban Outfitters-worthy money holder, at least three months before the UO starts carrying some for Christmas.

Toast Wallet

A novelty idea that could just save your life! Don’t believe me?

Say you’re getting mugged and you’re ordered by the perpetrator to give them your wallet and you pull out a piece of toast. They’re not going to want that, it’s just toast. Unbeknownst to them, all your valuables are hidden away in that slice of unwanted buttery toast and you get to keep the $7 and change you had in there that day.

($10.25 @ Amazon)

But if you’re a dude and are in need of a new wallet, don’t let our ignorance deter you! Available at MadCloth for $7.99, but it seems as if this baby has a hard time staying in stock!

Design student genius, Nancy Wu at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, created this 100-percent Beef Jerky Chanel bag project as a commentary of sorts on designer accessories. Why carry beef jerky around in your purse, when you could just chew it right off your bag! Can you imagine seeing a well-dressed women just knawing on her purse at lunchtime, it would be funny and gross at the same time.
