A Barrage of Buntings

Whenever you're out shopping, a plastic bag takes the trip
back home with you (unless your purchases are packed
in a paper bag or you take your own cloth bag).

Well, there must be other uses for plastic bags
than just lining a garbage can with it, right?

If it starts as a blah...

Turn it into a Tada! -- beautiful buntings
for your next celebration!

They're easy to make: (1) Make a triangle pattern on cardboard.
(2) Trace the pattern on the plastic with a pencil or marker.
(3) Cut the plastic, and (4) Connect the triangles by running
these through the sewing machine.

Limit your hue or use a many colorful plastic bags as you like!
