Make your own Mylar bags: BRANDMYDISPO
Would you like to make your own Mylar bags? Make sure that you follow these simple steps.
– Make sure that you have a large, empty space for the project. You will need to use it as a workspace for this task.
– Get out some scissors and cut out the handles of two plastic grocery bags so they are long enough to go around your neck.
– Lay down one piece of the bag on top of the other with them being face up and place one handle over another in opposite directions so that they are overlapping each other by ¼ inch or more. Make sure that there is an overlap on either side of both handles at least 6 inches wide when finished.
– Fold the overlapped section in half. Make sure that you have a crease along the fold so it is easier to cut out later on.
– Cut through both pieces of plastic at once with an X shape, making sure that your scissors are very sharp for this task. Make two cuts down either side until they meet each other towards the bottom and make one more cut up the entire length of the bag starting from where you made all four cuts ending near or at your first set of X marks depending on which type of Mylar bags style you opt for when finished.
– Open up your large piece of plastic back up by unfolding everything again while being careful not to rip anything apart if done correctly. This will give you access to your four separate pieces of plastic you will need to cut up in order to make your Mylar bag.
– Make sure that you have a ruler and marker on hand for this task so it is easier when cutting out the design from each small piece of plastic. Make an X shape with marks measuring at least ¼ inch apart or more depending on how big your finished product should be.
– Make 12 cuts using these measurements all along one side of another smaller piece of plastic without going through the entire large sheet just yet. Only do this step once making three long cuts down either side, then five short ones completing the set by making two vertical cuts back up both sides until they meet near where you originally started them, creating six points in total. Make sure that you have a total of six points when finished.
Conclusion paragraph: You can make your own Mylar bags for storing food. This DIY project is simple and inexpensive, so you won’t have to worry about spending too much money on something that may not work well in the long run.
All you need are some clear plastic zippered storage bags (we recommend using quart size), a piece of Mylar or aluminum foil, an ironing board, and some spray adhesive. The first thing you’ll want to do is cut out two pieces of Mylar or aluminum foil with dimensions measuring at least 8 inches by 10 inches each – one sheet should be left whole while the other will be folded into thirds lengthwise before being inserted inside the bag’s zipper opening.
Once both sheets are placed inside the bag, you’ll want to place the bag on your ironing board and press down firmly with an iron set to high heat. Make sure that all of the edges are sealed tightly by using a ruler as you go.
