Ziploc Baggie Quilts are very easy to make and quite useful. The project is inexpensive and with all the fun duct tape from neon colors to zebra print you can make it special. The instructions are simple so have fun with it!
Ziploc Baggie QuiltSupplies:
- Ziploc Bags: You can use any size that suits your project. Use the generic so you will not have to deal with logos and it saves you a bit of money.
- Scotch Tape
- Duct Tape: Have fun with this part since you can pick for a variety of fun colors and designs.
- Stickers, Embellishments (optional): If you use a plain colored duct tape you can also decorate it with stickers or scrapbook embellishments if you so desire
Step 1: Place your baggies flat on a table. If you are using four large bags place two on top and two on the bottom unless you want a long ways display. If you are using smaller bags arrange as you desire to create a square or rectangle. Using your scotch tape secure the baggies simply to hold in place. Do not overlap your bags.
Step 2: Use your duct tape across the middle and apply so it overlaps on your baggies to hold all securely together.
Step 3: Use your duct tape vertically to attach that way as well. Just make sure you do not seal the openings of the baggies. You will need all to open to make this project work properly.
Step 4: Your display so far should look like a window. Fold over any excess tape without sealing the openings of the baggies. Now tape around the edges of your baggie quilt and fold the excess tape to the back. Again, do not seal the openings of the baggies on your top row so you need to fold the tape on itself in the back. Other than the folded edges there should be no duct tape on the back of this project.
After that you are done. You can now use this to display artwork, days of the week, chores charts, letters, numbers, life cycle of the butterfly or frog, seasons, or phases of the moon. Have fun with it!
