Cut three long strips from the plastic bag for ribbon and “tape”.
Cut the plastic sheet to size.
Wrap the gift as you would normally.
Cut strips of plastic ribbon and use them as if they were tape. Place a piece of copy paper on the top of the plastic “tape”, and lightly iron the the plastic (rayon or polyester setting). This fuses the plastic together.
To create plastic cording, first twist two ribbons individually to create single stranded cord…
…then twist the two cords together.
Knot both ends and lightly stretch the entire length to remove kinks from the double stranded cord.
Tie the cording around the gift. I decided to layer a strip of grey paper on the box for more color and contrast.
Cut the knots off the ends of the cord after tying the bow.
