Q&A with zombify

ShyMomma asked:
Wow! I never would have guessed that these we're made out of recycled shopping bags! Great idea. How many did you use? I'm going to start saving right away!
zombify answered:
Lol I lost count. I know it was a lot though. One strip makes about 4 hdc.
SandraT1010 asked:
They look great!! Ive made two myself. I am amazed of how strong they actually are. I found a place that has green bags and had some yellow ones from the dollar store and alternated them to make a band around the top of one of mine. Great job.
zombify answered:
That's awesome. I've been trying to find some cool bags in bright colors. Not much luck yet.
