There is hardly a household that does not have a bag of sachets. And the most interesting thing is that this method of storing used plastic bags is becoming a very popular habit not only among residents of the post-Soviet space. And it's not about scarcity or savings at all. But whatever the reasons for such frugality, storing packages in a package is not entirely aesthetically pleasing, so there are craftsmen who create original crafts and even manage to "build" houses for them.
In the good old days in the vastness of the Soviet Union, plastic bags were a curiosity, and all the housewives of the country actively washed, dried and carefully stored them until they were worn out to holes. Now the situation is completely different, but nevertheless, the habit of storing used packages has remained. Moreover, such frugality turned out to be very "contagious", now residents of quite prosperous countries do what they laughed at for decades - they also try to use plastic bags several times.
True, today's realities of life force us to do this not from a shortage of junk goods, but quite the opposite - from an overabundance. The planet is already choking on garbage, most of which is polyethylene. But our today's story is not about how to deal with this scourge, but how to attach a whole heap of packages without damaging the interior. An interesting way to hide a large number of bags in a convenient place and in plain sight was demonstrated by an inventive craftsman who made an attractive house for them from waste.
In order to become the owner of such a thing, you will need:
• two plastic boxes for vegetables (you can get it on the market for free);
• dense corrugated cardboard (any box from under the equipment, for example);
• pieces of linoleum without insulation;
• metal mesh for gabions;
• wooden sticks for crafts, decor;
• spray paint;
• glue gun, PVA glue;
• knife, scissors, nippers, ruler and other tools
A plastic box will be used as a rigid frame of the house. To begin with, the tier connector with handles protruding above the side is cut off so that the sides are of the same size. Then we cut off one of the narrow sides so that the back and side walls remain. Cut out the corner part from the side of the second box (you should get a gable roof).
Now you can start creating a cardboard frame around the parts from the vegetable crate. It is best to use a glue gun to secure cut-to-size cardboard pieces to shorten the drying time and provide a more secure hold. When the roof and walls of the house turn out to be voluminous and even, the inside of the workpiece should be tightened with a fabric with a water-repellent coating or a thick film, because cardboard is not a reliable material. You can fix the "interior decoration" with PVA glue.
From the scraps of the bottom of the box, cut out the front part of the house, which is leveled using cardboard. We wrap the inside with the same material as the back frame.
Important: On the front part, doors should be made that should open.
After the front part is fastened to the main frame, you should start decorating the exterior of the house. Roof tiles can be made of linoleum, for example (it is more resistant to moisture, steam and dirt, which are abundant in the kitchen), mica, coins, buttons and other decorative elements. You can decorate the bag house in any way and material, if only in the end it turns out to be attractive and can be cleaned in an affordable way.
In this example, the master decided to use linoleum, which he cut into scales and fixed with glue in a checkerboard pattern. To make the facade of the house more textured, he decided to make a braid that imitates a brick. To do this, you need a metal mesh for gabions with small cells and strips of linoleum. First, the mesh is cut out, crimped along the frame blank, after which you can start weaving (according to the basket principle). When the entire area is filled, we glue the wicker part on the house itself, not forgetting to fix the ends of the linoleum strips on the cardboard frame.
It remains only to assemble the door and window, so that the house takes on the usual shape. As a base, cardboard is cut to size, and already on it to assemble the part using thin wooden plates, you can lay out matches, bamboo sticks in several rows or weave a door leaf from thin branches. In this matter, everyone is determined by himself, the main thing is that these details are combined with the facade cladding. These parts can then be painted in the same color as the tiles and metal mesh.
When the windows and doors take their place, you can hang the house on the wall so that it is within reach. After that, from the notorious package, empty packages are transferred to their own house, a roof is installed on top, which cannot be fixed, because through it subsequent packaging materials will be sent for storage. But you need to get them out through the door, so when stacking it is worth working out a certain system so that the bags do not fall out and are not pulled out at once by the whole "company".
Enterprising craftsmen and needlewomen have come up with many ways to empty a drawer from a kitchen set full of bags or attach a bag with these little things needed in the household. The authors of Novate.ru have selected several interesting examples that can be easily implemented even for those who do not have a craving for creativity, but wants to put things in order in the kitchen.
Recently, it has become fashionable to reuse unnecessary things that are gathering dust on shelves or hidden on the balcony "just in case." Not only is the house cleared in this way, it can also be done very useful little things in everyday life, which will make life much easier.
