I'm sure many of you have ironed plastic bags together to make fused plastic.  I really enjoy making this stuff for various projects.  Here it is as gift wrap.

I would never have thought to do this and it would be great for wrapping presents that need to be shipped quite a distance as it would be more durable and more likely survive the long trip unscathed.

I have SOOOOO many of these bags, and I keep forgetting to return them to Walmart....I think I'm going to make me about 10 or 12 reusable bags!
