Introduction: PLASTIC CARRY BAG FLOWERS WITH VASE AS HOME DECOR
-In these Instructables, I want to share with you, how I did the home decor by using plastic carry bags.
-in our home, there is more amount(some kg) of carry bags, we can't do destruct or composter them.
-But we can reuse them in many ways,
- in such one of the ways of Reuse, I use this plastic carry bags as hone decor.
Plastic carry bags (various colours),
Basic craft tools(scissors, ruler, pencil...etc),
A4 paper sheet,
Woollen threads(various colours),
Step 1: GATHER YOUR PLASTIC BAGS
In our home, there are lots (some 100's) number of carry bags, gather them.
Step 2: CHOOSE THE RIGHT CARRY BAGS
In that, some of them are tear and can't use in condition, from that choose right condition of carry bags.
Step 3: PREPARE THEM TO PROCESS
Prepare the selected carry bags to process, remove if abstract are there or any tiny particles or all kind of dust.
Step 4: CUT AND REMOVE UNNECESSARY PARTS OF CARRY BAG
Cut and remove, both handles and bottom side of carry bags, we use only the middle portion of carry bags.
Step 5: HOT PRESSING
Plastic carry bag sides are too thin, it's difficult to convert as flowers.it's easy if the Two sides are on a single sheet.
To do this hot pressing is done by using the iron box.
Place the carry bag in between 2 A4 sheets and do the hot pressing, this avoids melting of carry bags due to heat.
Use normal heat(cotton) to do the hot pressing.
Step 6: MARK AND CUT - REMOVE UNSHAPED SIDES OF CARRY BAGS
After completing hot pressing Mark and cut, remove unshaped sides of carry bags, get ready for flower making.
Step 7: PEDALS MAKING (SINGLE PEDAL EXPLAINED)
-Cut the carry bags, dimensions are shown in images.
-Adding various colours increases the beauty of flowers,
-Here colours may vary, but the dimensions and process remain the same.
1, cut the carry bags with a given dimension.
2, join the two Ends inside with glue.
3, cut and remove the triangular shape, use a cone for flower making.
4, join Both ends A and B with origin 'o'(half-fold)
Then join A and O(half-fold), then join B and O(half-fold).
5, thus Cone looks like.
