Well hello there!
I have another plastic bag make-over
for you today and I'm using this blue beauty.
Cut off the handles so you are left
with a rectangle.
Now make some strips. These are
approximately 1" (width) x 17" (height).
Then cut these in half, approximately
1" (width) x 8.5" (height).
Then fold each strip into a figure-eight,
secure with staples where the ends meet.
Here's a different angle -- they look
like a canoe. You'll need to make four
Stack them on top of each other in crisscross fashion.
Attach each layer with double-sided tape
or hot glue.
Top it off with a barrel-shape made of the
same material. Now you have a ribbon
similar to the ones you can get at a store.
Then add double-sided tape at the bottom.
I think I need to start making a lot of these
so I'm ready to wrap for the holidays!
Why buy ribbon when you can make your own
using colorful plastic bags?
May you have a rip-roaring weekend!
