My husband hides his bubble wrap from me (for obvious reasons). I can’t be around it – it’s just too much of a temptation. Those little air bubbles must be popped, and I’m just too willing to be the one to do it! Sometimes I pull it through my fingers and make it sound like a cap gun. Often I just pop individual bubbles in a row across – starting at the top, working my way down (never from the bottom working my way up). Am I the only one who is disappointed when I try to pop a bubble and it is under-inflated to begin with? You don’t get that solid POP from it – barely a release of air – it’s a total waste of effort when that happens! Oh come on – you know what I’m talkin’ about!
You think I should get a life, don’t you?
Oh card makers… did you know there is a bubble wrap technique you can put on your handmade greeting cards? Check this out:
Let’s see what else we can do with bubble wrap. Hmm… this looks interesting, and by interesting, I mean crazy.
Did you hear that guy when he got up – ??? He said he was a little dizzy – um… really??? Can’t imagine WHY!!! LOL!
We interrupt this popping good time for an important message:
Well – I know where to go to get my fix – yes – and it’s free!!!
Now back to the fun!
How do you snap bubble wrap??? Is there some psychological significance behind the way we choose to pop it??? I have a preferred size of air pocket. I wonder what that means? The clear bubble wrap is fine, but I really get excited when I find light green or bright pink. I see those around Christmas time.
Am I thinking too deeply??? YES!!! I think the fact that I’m addicted to this stuff is reason enough to seek professional help. Did I write that out loud? Hmm…
Not long ago I received a gift from a friend through the mail. It was one of those brown envelopes lined with bubble wrap! I don’t know which I enjoyed more, the bubble wrap envelope or what was inside! It felt as though I received two gifts! That envelope kept me entertained for a long time! I get so excited when I get my own personal bubble wrap since my husband won’t share his with me.
Although the average diameter of the bubble is 1 cm, the bubbles can be from 6 mm (1/4″) to 26 mm (1″) or more, to provide added levels of shock absorption during transit.
Did you know that the Torninova Corporation in Italy makes bubble wrap that has heart-shaped bubbles? Wouldn’t that be a sweet treat for your favorite sweetheart / friend / bubble wrap popper??? You know, some of us are not supposed to indulge in chocolate. LOL!!! Heart-shaped bubble wrap – oh, how romantic!!! ❤
