Handmade Reusable Zip Lock Bag

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I like using zip lock bags to store things, and one day I thought it would be nice to simply make one out of clear vinyl so I could use it over and over again. Not only can I use it to carry some of my crafty items but it’s also cute enough to use as an oversized clutch—thanks to the hand painted design I added on the front—using Martha Stewart multi-purpose paint. I made this clear case the same size of as a 2 gallon zip lock bag—so it’s big enough to carry toiletries if you’re traveling too. I had so much fun making this case because I was simply painting and letting my brush flow freely to get the design.  I’m looking forward to making more like it but in different sizes. I’m also thinking about trying different colors paints as well. 


  1. OMG Nicole! Genius idea right here! I love zip lock bags (and I even reuse them until they absolutey can't be reused anymore). So I want one of yours! Let me know what sizes you'll be making and prices, I will totally order one or two!

  2. That´s really cool!!
    Once we bought something in an oval zip lock bag and I used it like a pencilcase :))
    It´s really stylish ;)
