Why wasting a coffee bag when you can reuse it in another way ?

  Sommaire  

Etui à couverts en paquet de caféThis case will take you only one hour and a little amount of materials. I made it to store picnic cutlery, but you can also use it for your glasses or pen and pencils.

You will make it easily. The sizes will depend from those of the bag you have and the things you want to store in it. Here, I used a big bag for one kilo coffee I had from a coffee-house. My picnic cutlery gave me the size of the final object.

  1. Coffee bag
