Was just playing with making fused plastic material from the tute here:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178442.0

And despite not doing it very well (I learned alot... that's what mistakes are about, right?), I did manage to salvage enough to make a cute little tote:





Duct tape immediately sprung to mind for the handles but then it was looking a little dull so I went a bit mad with some more duct tape and a sharpie to create the spotty/flowery look.

Not bad for a quick experiment and I'm definately gonna do more of the plastic fusing... although I won't try and fuse a whole length of opened up up bags at once... not enough control.

Love the Plastic fusing (Thanks for the tute-link!)  And the Duct-tape decorations are awesome too!  Cheesy
