Debi has some amazing ideas when it comes to reusing! Here she created a chic way to recycle plastic bags!
Again with the Summer rushing in. I decided to make another recycled project to make with my grand-daughter. This one project could be used in so many other ways as well.
Cardstock to press the bags with
small hard plastic box
Xyron’s Mega Runner
Xyron’s 1.5 Create-a-Sticker
CraftwellUSA’s eCraft Die cutting machine
Veggie cutting mat
The first thing that I did was cut my shopping bags apart. I made five layers of rectangles with the bags. I made 12 inches wide and 10 inches deep to fit my veggie cutting mat. I then smoothed the plastic and placed it between two sheets of cardstock and used my iron to heat it and make it stick together first.
