all from fused plastic , basically i fused bags together to make the sides and base using a well know shops bags because i liked

the quote on it..use me reuse me and try not to lose me. , which i sewed into a box shape. i then cut off handles off one bag and

fused the rest of the plastic to make flower shapes from, and i also fused some dark green to make leaves and orange to make the

middle of the flower. i thought the handles looked a bit plain so made a flower out of fused plastic one of those delivery packets

and a beer bottle top ..all was then fised together apart from the beer bottle handles which where glued on.total cost errmm about

10p for the glue and electric for the iron . The bags i used all had tears in them that meant they whould have been recycled anyway

, so i just cut out one process! thanksfor the challenge
