I have never thought to fuse bubble wrap. I'm going to be adding that to my bag of crafty tricks.  Cool

Wow, what an awesome idea!  There's no way I would have guess that used to be bubble wrap.

I thought the first picture was little shells too!  I was trying to figure out where the bubble wrap came into play. Cheesy

This is a great idea!
