Just a quick simple DIY idea to share with you peeps.
I have this habit of keeping shopping bags and even plastic bags from department stores. I actually fold them up nicely in a triangular shape and put them all in a bigger bag.
And in this post, I'm going to show you what you can do with your shopping paper bags and convert them into something useful. As you all know, I enjoy diy-ing especially recycling unwanted stuffs.
An ordinary shopping bag you see everywhere.
LOL! Feels like I'm putting up an advert for DST right? I had 2 identical shopping bags - one from winning Best Personal Blog and the other from Blog of the Year. So, I thought I could use it to do some DIY since the size ngam it.
Left : Plain shopping bag.
Right : End result. an you figure out what is it?
Its identical as you can see. I cut open up into one big piece in order to wrap something with it. But can you figure out what that "something" is? As you can see, its rectangular and hard.
Its my file folder~!
Hey, I'm now a student and carrying a file folder around my arm like a baby can be tiring and you ought to understand. So I came up with the idea of wrapping it up with a shopping bag (recycling) thus I can have those handles to carry it with my hand, place them freely on the floor and pick it up easily!
Killing two birds with one stone!
Am I smart or what? Well, my classmates did gave me thumbs up for coming up with such innovative idea and I thought I should blog it to share with you guys... Even though Bobby told me that I should keep it to myself because people might just copy it without crediting me (as usual.. I damn biasa liao).
I reserved the left side for another folder for papers which can't be punched (example: lecturer's transparency, letter in envelope and other miscellaneous) and the ugly red stripe of paper is to hold it properly so it won't slip.
As you can see, this project is not done perfectly as I didn't spend much time in "beautifying" it. I actually have another plan to wrap it up with fabric thus its going to be more "tahan" and pretty. But see lah, not sure if I have the time or not since I'm now flooded with school works.
I'm thinking to make another notice board for my hostel room too, to cover up those ugly stains.
