1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 20 ENTRIES / Im A Plastic Bag. Eco friendly? Make me! on: August 02, 2007 04:02:46 AM
My theme for this challenge is "Im A Plastic Bag. Eco friendly? Make me!" The objective is to find ways to make use of plastic bags so that it will not end up in the landfill.

As this is the first time I am posting, I am not allowed to posted pictures here.  To view pictures of what I have created can be viewed off this link:

As I do not have enough plastic bags of similar size for this challenge, the bag I have created is a little too small for grocery but I least I get the design across.

I pulled out 2 huge plastic bags that held some electrical ware I bought and cut them into strips. I braided 3 strips together to make them studier.

I used rubber bands to hold the strips together and I have added flowers made out of plastic bags to decorate my 2nd design. So there, I have displaced 2 more plastic bags on earth.

It is strong enough to hold a 1.5 litre bottle of water even though I have used rubber bands to hold the strips together.  I plan to tie them together with raffia strings once I have collected enough abandoned material for the project to make a bigger bag.

As the the strips I have used are longer in the 1st design, I can use it to store a basketball.  A nice way to give a ball as a present?

Here is a poser for you. What would God, ever compassionate and forgiving, do to mankind who created things that destroyed his creations?

"I am naughty. Want me to be good? Help me!"
(What would you do to your wayward kids?)

Im A Plastic Bag. Eco friendly? Make me!
