It’s been a week since Coles released their highly anticipated Little Shop Christmas edition, with the supermarket bringing out five new minis to collect. Not surprisingly, there’s been sell-outs nationwide with customers clambering to get their hands on the new festive collectables, which include bon bon crackers, a gingerbread biscuit, gingerbread ice-cream, a mince pie and a pavlova.
But one savvy shopper has taken to Instagram to reveal what she does with the Little Shops wrappers - and it’s ingenious! Etsy retailer Mimi Craft Studio has posted pics her super cute Little Shop mini shopping bag hack, telling people ‘Don't throw away the Coles little mini packaging. Turn it into mini shopping bag.’
That’s right, the crafty shopper cuts and folds and sticks the discarded Little Shop wrappers together to make the ADORABLE little shopping bags - complete with tiny ribbon handles. It’s perfect to hold all your new Christmas minis ... or even go in your mini Kmart shopping trolley!
Don't throw away the coles little mini packaging. Turn it into mini shopping bag. #coles #colessupermarkets #ultimatelittleshopper #coleslittleshop #colesminicollectables
Needless to say the clever hack has been shared over the many Coles Little Shop facebook groups, with fans saying they’re ‘too cute’ and ‘can’t wait to give this a go.’ We can’t either! Let’s just hope our fingers are little enough to manage it!
