Getting creative with old plastic bags

DIY plastic bag book covers and postcards

Can you remember my old post about ironing plastic bags? Ironing plastic bags turns them into a wax-like, hard material you can even sew together with your sewing machine. Here are two examples of what I did with my unique plastic bag fabric: I turned one plastic bag (which I got from a candy shop in Paris a long time ago) into a unique book/note-book cover. I just cut it into shape, put a bit of glue on the note-book, wrapped the plastic fabric around it and let the note-book dry for five minutes. It helps when you put something heavy on it. I gave DIY note-book to a friend as a birthday present the same day.

Another interesting looking bag from an Indian shop got turned into an XXL postcard for two of my friends who were having a housewarming party that weekend. I just cut out a postcard from an old carton, cut the plastic fabric into shape and glued everything together. Pretty easy, isn’t it?
