BUBBLE WRAP APPRECIATION DAY

TL 1-26 BUBBLE WRAP APPRECIATION DAY

 

1-26 I CAN'T STOP SNAPPIN'

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!!!
