What do you do with those large rice packets after emptying them? Throw them, of course. But after watching this video, you might start saving them to repurpose them. An actor used her creativity to turn an old rice packet into a handbag! And if you’ll see the end result, you just can’t tell it is a recycled food bag. This innovation has amused not just us but the internet as well. The viral video has even grabbed the attention of celebrity Uorfi Javed who also loves to recycle old products to produce fashion items.
Actor Shweta Mahadik, who also calls herself a digital content creator and “Crazy DIY Lady” on her Instagram profile, posted the video of her unique creation. She had an old rice bag in a “stunning electric blue colour.” She cut out a few blue-coloured strips of the same size from the packet, pasted them together in the shape of a bag and stitched it all together. She even sew a similar colour zip on top of the bag and attached a bright gold chain on the ends. “Upcycled bag from old rice bag,” she captioned the video.
