Wash the packet to remove any left over crumbs and chip residue.
Dry the packet thoroughly.

Step 2: Covering the Packet

Cut the chip packet along the bottom edge and the centre seam line where the zip will be.

Cut a piece of plastic contact to a the size of the chip packet.

Carefully stick the contact to the chip packet using a ruler or book to avoid air bubbles.

Step 3: Adding the Duct Tape

Apply duct tape to the entire inside of the chip packet.

    I dig it. I've used discarded chip bags for emergency gloves, cold wraps for beverage cans, and more but your instructable lets me know another beneficial use of more permanence. Thank you.
