It’s TGI…DIY time, and with that comes another fun DIY project from the TerraCycle design junkies!

This week, you can learn to upcycle your old Capri Sun box into a “tote-ally” cool little tote bag!


All you’ll need to start is a pair of scissors, a ruler, hole-punch, an old Capri Sun box, some ribbon, along with an optional Capri Sun drink pouch and a roll of colored tape. Follow the instructions HERE, or use the easy-to-follow DIY video over at the TerraCycle YouTube channel to learn how to start; it’s super simple!

After your tote bag is made, you can use the colored tape or some thick markers to decorate the outside. If you’re feeling particularly handy, try out the Capri Sun Wallet DIY to make a sick wallet that you can adhere to the side of your tote bag for some extra storage space and a nifty accessory. Check out our Capri Sun Wallet DIY instructional video.

With the holiday season right around the corner, this tote gives you the perfect bag for small gifts to friends and family, all while passing on the word about sustainability!

While you’re at it, why don’t you take a picture of your completed tote and post it on TerraCycle’s Facebook and Twitter pages to spread the word about how TerraCycle is eliminating the idea of waste!

Be sure to come back next Friday, and every Friday, for another exciting TGI…DIY design project!
