Bombastic plastic bag basket DIY

Yes, I sinned.

While I was out shopping with my cousin yesterday, I made a mistake, I bought so much folders for school, that they didn’t fit in my little bagor in my hands, so – sadly- I took a plastic bag for my purchases. And now, one day later I really reget, that choice, cause now I have a plastic bag more in my collection of plastic bags.

But I had an idea on how to upcycle the bag in something more useful, than just being a part of my collection. Now following the bombastic plastic bag basket:

You need:

  1. an old plastic bag,
  2. some glue ( I used superglue)
  3. a scissor
  4. a ruler
  5. and most important: JOY

6. Step: When you are finished cut the rest and start with the second row and go on until you have enough
