Look clearly again … yes, the wrapper is actually a plastic bag! Just find the prettiest and most colourful. Or ones without writing. Triple-bag the gift, tie all three sets of handles into a knot, cut the tops of the loops and fan out the pieces to make a plume. Ta-daa! Your emergency wrapping paper!

Do you have a family member who drinks soda water? Turn two tall skinny soda bottles into a nifty and quick spaghetti holder! This works well for other tall slim items too, such as paint brushes or pencils. Cut your bottles 6 1/2 inches up from the bottom. Cut a 2 inch slit up the bottom of ONE of the bottles. This allows you to overlap the bottom a little so it fits inside the other half.


If you haven’t watch this, you should.The correct way to store your plastic bag.
