I buy a bunch of flowers every week (I love having fresh flowers in the flat, and as I spend no money on a garden I think it's an affordable luxury). Every week I was putting the paper from around the flowers in the recycle bin and it seemed a waste. I had seen some great instructables on fusing plastic bags (especially http://www.instructables.com/id/Fusing-Plastic-Bags-the-eclipse-way/ ) and thought that they would make a good reusable wrap. This is the first one and I hope to make some more with patterns and maybe a tie.

For someone who doesn't want to recycle a piece of paper a week I seem to have a lot of plastic bags. I have cut off the handles and the bottom seam. This is my iron and some baking paper, they are sitting on my metal 'cafe' table but I think any hard surface would be OK - you are going to protect it with the paper and iron on a low heat.
