People Are Making All Kinds Of Things Out Of Ikea Bags Now

Thanks Balenciaga!

What the Frakta?

In April, the high-end brand Balenciaga made headlines when it debuted a $2,145 tote bag that looks almost exactly like Ikea’s $0.99 blue plastic bags.

And ever since, people all over the internet have been jumping on the idea of turning the classic, crinkly Frakta bag into the latest fashion accessory.

And people have been getting pretty creative.

Here are the best of the bunch:

Ikea is in on the game as well. For instance, Ikea Poland posted a few uses for its Frakta bag on Instagram:
