1. How To Fold Plastic Bags With Handles To Use In Flower Vase

        My favorite method is to fold plastic bags for storage and reuse. Most people can’t tell that my vase with flowers is a plastic bag dispenser. I am going to add a few more flowers or leaves in the future but even with 3 flowers, I like the new idea to store my plastic bags in the kitchen. I can easily add more bags when needed. Have a few bags from the store added and done. I don’t need much time to organize my bags and super easy to place them for storage in the vase. However, check the second method as well because the second one is more organized and compact, great to take a roll of bags in your car.

How To

  1. Place each bag in the handles of the previous one and we create a chain from plastic bags. It will be like a hook made out of the bag and when we pull the bag we see the next bag easily.

2. Push the bag into a vase and attach the next bag. I like this method because we can add more bags when we have more bags!

 Now just hide them in the vase and when need a bag pull out how many you need! Add more greens and nobody can say the vase with flowers is a grocery bag dispenser. Fancy and easy plastic bag storage hack!

2. How To Make Roll Of Plastic Bags To Pull Out

  1. Fold each bag three times. Try to keep the same width of each bag as I show in the photo. Then bend the tail at a 90-degree angle.

2. Start rolling the bag from the bent side and stop when done with 2/3 of the bag length. Place at the end another beg and continue rolling in other bags one by one. I usually do this rolling in front of TV:)

3. Make sure the first bag’s tail is out after you are done rolling in bags. This is important because we need it easy to find the first bag tail. If we do rolling right, the next bag will be out after we pull the first bag, and easy to pull when we need it. The amount of bags depends on the size of your vase and how many bags you have.

I am making in advance bag rolls when having time (watch TV or talk on the phone with friend) and store them. Then I secure them with rubber bands and use them when needed.

4. Place the roll of the bags inside the vase.

5. Pull the bag when need it and the next bag tackle inside the vase. I separate flowers and bags with clear tape. I fold in half the tape inside the vase so it has no sticky sides and doesn’t catch the bags. Then more leaves the bouquet than less visible bags will be.

*Tape I attached, so it will visible in the photo. If you stick to the vase well and cover it up with greens only you know the roll of bags there. Especially if the vase is placed close to the wall.
