Take the white plastic bags and cut them in half, so its only the white side of the bag, that  you retain. Afterwards layout newspapers on a flat surface. Lay out one one of the cutout white plastic bag, lay the rest on top of it. Making sure all the sides are as matching as possible, and flatting out the the bags as much as possible. Afterwards lay another newspaper on top of the white plastic bags and then use the iron. (make sure the iron is around 5 to 6) Do not let the iron stand for to long over the plastics, they melt easily

Step 4: Patter

After the pieces have been melted together, remove the newspapers from the top. fold the white melted plastic bags in half. draw the stencil of the top, like the image provided. Make sure where the top goes down in the middle is the side that is all ready together and not the ends. ( when you cut out items or draw them, remember to consider the extra you are going to need to melt pieces together.)
