I can’t believe the 4th of July is right around the corner. I don’t know where the time goes. On the 4th we are going to have a BBQ/Picnic. I found a great craft project to make to use for the day on P&Geveryday. I am going to make Easy Picnic Utensil Holders. They were fun and easy to make.
It only took a few items to make these handy Utensil Holders Paper ~ sacks (brown paper “lunch” bags), colored tape, plastic utensils and paper napkins.
The first step is to take the lunch bag and place it on a hard surface and fold it up from the bottom. This is the pocket to put the utensils. Create a crisp crease.
Next take a strip of colored tape and place half of it on the top edge of your folded piece, and then press down to make sure the tape adheres correctly. Do the same to each side of the bag.
If you want to personalize the holder now would be the time to add stamps, stickers, names or phrases like “Bon Appetit” or “Eat, Drink and Be Merry”.
The finial step is adding the napkin and plastic utensils. It is fun getting colored napkins and utensils to match your theme.
My finished Picnic Utensil Holders
What is really great is that you can open the bag when you are done eating and collect all your trash to throw away. So not only is it a cute idea it is practical too!
I really like P&Geveryday they have all kinds of articles on the site. You will find delicious recipes, beauty trends, smart tips, DIY projects, fresh ideas, product ratings and reviews, coupons from trusted brands and much more. They have some great Quick & Easy Recipes that I love – like 4 things to do with left-over mashed potatoes and No Bake Peanut Butter Pie. There is a section on family bonding. You can find something new every day. They have great ideas for holidays too. I try to go to P&Geveryday™ a few times a week.
P&Geveryday™ is about listening to what you truly need and sharing resourceful ideas, advice and products to make it easy for you to enjoy life … every day. It is your online platform created by Procter & Gamble, a company that has been establishing brands for the past 175 years.
I think P&Geveryday has something for everyone. Make sure you check them out and leave me a comment on what you found that you like. Check out their P&Geveryday Facebook page for even more ideas on how to achieve a life full of rewarding moments.

I love this craft project! Very cute idea
This would work great when having a big BBQ, everyone could just grab one and go!
very very cute i have no artsy or crafty sense in me to come up with something so cute! Great project ty!
I think you are very artistic and creative and your finished product looks earthy and chic. I would love to do the same if we ever had picnics.
Such a cute idea! Even I think I could do this, and I am not crafty in any way! Thank you for sharing!
Really cute project! It’ll be perfect for an upcoming family picnic. Thanks for sharing!
What a neat idea, I wish I was creative to come up with this stuff, it’s a good thing the internet has all kinds of ideas I can use like this.
Such an adorable idea, now I can’t believe the 4th has come and gone already! Time flies
That is so smart! It is cute too! This is my kind of craft! Thanks for sharing!
Cute! I love P&G and love their site too!
What a cute idea! Thank you, I am going to make this!
I have been a fan of their site for quite some time! They ALWAYS have great entertaining ideas and I have made a couple of the recipes they have posted!
What a great project for my kids and we could keep a bunch with our camping gear. Love it
These would b perfect for a kids bday in theme or color. Nice!
This would be nice to have for my husband to take to work with him in his lunch bucket. Better this way then the silverware just flopping around in there.
I am a P&G fan. I use many P&G products on a regular basis. Thanks for introducing me to P&G Everyday.
What a cute idea! I love it!
This is much nicer than the plastic tupperware I have been using.
Thoughtful and inexpensive. Everything doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to be cool.
This is beautiful.can’t wait to get one.
Useful and cute. what I like about this idea is that it would be a great group project for kids.
These are adorable… and useful for every type of event. Will for sure be doing this in the future!! Great tip!
Cute idea, looks easy enough.
That is such a great idea for a picnic or any meal with plastic ware. I always buy the cool/pretty tape and never know what to do with it-I’m going to wow everyone with a BBQ this month and do something similar. I love P & G and they have a lot of excellent coupons that save a ton!.
That very cute and I like how nice and neat it looks. I especially like how it would store flat and this would solve the age old problem of blowing napkins and lost forks and such!
This is a super neat idea!!
Very cute…looks really nice!
These are really cute and would add charm to the picnic or event. Thanks for sharing what you did.
What a clever idea! Guests will be impressed, youi can color theme it and love the idea of using it for litter afterwards. Thanks!
So cute, and super easy! Would be a lot of fun decorating them for other holidays as well!
This is so cute! Thanks for the post!
I love how innovative and useful these products are!
What a cute idea for a picnic!!
Hi! What a super cool idea! I love that it’s super cute, can be personalized, and that it doubles as a garbage bag. Love this! Thank-you
These are so cute. They look easy enough to make. This way the wind would not blow the napkins away.
Soooo cute and what a great idea to have little “trash” bags right on hand. Would love to try these for my little guy’s birthday next year!
This is a great idea. A way to dress up disposable silverware and napkins. I’ve had parties that I wanted to look nice and so I used real silverware and after I’m up late washing dishes. Or I used the disposables and had to accept that it didn’t look great. This would be a cute way to compromise.
What a cute idea and so easy! Thanks for sharing. I love all the cute designs that are available now on disposable items, they use to be white or white!
Those paper bag utensil holders have been all over pinterest lately! No wonder – they are wicked cute!
What a great idea! I like that they are so cute and yet they can be used as bags for the trash also.
I love this idea thanks for sharing and showing how it turns out. The possibilities are endless for this.
This is a really neat craft and thank you for sharing with us.
These are pretty cute 🙂
Great idea! Super cute, and I love that they can be used for clean up too!
Very practical and fun way to make useful household items! Thanks!
This is such a great and simple idea.Its such a great way to keep all the utensils together when going out for a picnic.Thank you for the giveaways and taking the time doing them
My 1st visit here and those are so cute!
Very cute ideas! Love the colors!
These are super-cute! I love that they can be customized for different themes and colors. I’ll try them out for an upcoming picnic party we are having!
Oh this is such a cute idea! These would be perfect for any occasion
Great idea for picnics or when i take my 5 yr old niece to park!!!
What a cute idea. You could also write your guests name on the bags which can serve as a place card
these would be awesome for kids parties too.
Thank you for sharing
that’s such a cute idea and so functional!
This is so cute love it for my next BBQ the kids would find it fun to make them too.
So cute. These could be stylized for just about any occasion, too. I could see them at a child’s birthday party, or a baby or bridal shower. I love getting the P&G newsletter. They have some great ideas (and I especially love the coupons).
What a wonderful idea for a picnic!!!
What a sweet picnic holder for silver ware – P & G Everyday looks to be a useful site for DIY and other houseful shortcuts.
Great idea encourages the trash disposal is a snap.
What a great idea! And I think i might actually be able to do this one. Wish there was a pin it button.
These are really nice!
Very cute, wonderful idea. I’ll probably end up trying to do something like it!
Such a cute idea, going to try it
I love to enter contests, but I find that a lot of these contest require me to do things I just DON’T DO…. Like I’m asked to TWEET something and I DON”T Tweet… Or Instagram… or Blog…. Infact I VERY RARELY even go on Facebook….
I love it when I am directed to another place that has some wonderful Ideas…. THAT at least I CAN DO…
This has a great idea… Thanks
I love it! So easy to make, and I have so many different washi tapes! I love how easy it is to pack the utensils up for a picnic! I will definitely make these.
This is so handy & I can think of 5 or 6 ways I can use this with different themes.
That is just the cutest idea I have seen in a long time. My children are all grown so I don’t do picnics much anymore, but I do.
Thanks so much for the heads up! I never realized how many brands are under the Proctor & Gamble ‘umbrella’. I never knew they also have an Arts & Crafts section too, though I am not surprised, now all I have to do is go visit their site!
Thi is really really cute! Such a great dual duty craft that looks great and is functional!
easy to make and they look good too
This is a neat idea. That would be something to teahc little kids to do in maybe a Sunday School class.
This is perfect for an upcoming family reunion picnic. Thanks for sharing!
