This is amazing!  I am sure your son loves this - I know mine would have at that age.  It could also be used as a tactile teaching tool and emphasis something by creating a scene for it.

I LOVE the bat one! 

I have to agree with other that less is more and that it looks great with just a few flowers at the edge, but it would also look great if you made one that was covered with them too.

14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / LICENSE PLATE PURSE & CAR WHEEL BELT FROM UPCYCLED PURSE on: November 26, 2011 05:08:09 PM

Dollar Store Crafts (http://dollarstorecrafts.com/2011/11/project-dollar-store-accessory-thrifty-challenge-reveal-and-linkup/) has a challenge to correspond with Project Accessory for anyone who would like to play along and I decided to participate  week one.  

This challenge was to create a belt, a necklace and one other accessory to go with a white t-shirt and a pair of jeans based on items from a thrift store (or in my case, using the materials I found in my garage).

this is the purse that I started with and I used it along with a used the license plate and the broken Hot Wheel.

I cut down the purse at the bottom and flattened it and cut off the straps and attached one of them to each end instead of the sides.  On one side I glued the license plate and added 4 brads for decoration and to help hold it on the bag.  

On the back, there was an ugly spot where I removed the bow that had been on the purse, so I glued the broken Hot Wheel to cover it up, and it also gives the purse a different look depending on what side is facing outward.  I used velcro inside and glued it in to hold the purse closed.

The belt is made out of one of the straps and the snaps of of the purse and the wheel off of a model car.  The other components are thread, aluminum tape from the hardware store and 9001 glue.

I have never worked with duct tape before so I thought this challenge was a good was to get started using this medium.

It came out better than expected because from a distance, it looks like a heavy chain when in fact it is lightweight so there is the potential to craft is in to more costumey Halloween chains.

I used regular duct tape to create a duct tape chain by cutting into 4 thin strip, folded into thirds and then wove two sets of strand together and taped to two pieces of duct tape folded in half.

Cool idea.  My son is a gearhead and would love something like this.  I am going to keep this in mind for a Christmas present.  Thanks for sharing this with us:)
