Very cute! I luuurve the beaded handle (which is where my purses always fail) and the lining makes it seem very professional. And thanks for the handy instructions!

I made this purse for my friend Lucy...hence the profusion of L's... I was inspired by all the initial bags and wallets I've seen by fancy designers. I cut the letters out of old magazines (which took a very long time), then taped them with packing tape and coated the inside with black duct tape.
15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / paper crane mobile on: September 03, 2006 11:27:13 PM

So, I'd already finished my 1000 paper cranes and was waiting for a chance to find a hunking big branch to hang them from, when I realized that I actually had more cranes and a small branch already lying around.  I had already perfected my crane-stringing technique and decided to make a quick mobile for my friend's birthday:



I used plain thread to string the cranes, spacing them with beads, sequins, and the odd button or two. I then broke the branch in half, wrapped copper wire around it, and hung the four strings with copper wire off the crossed branches.

Sorry for the blurry, dim picture, but I gave it to my friend the night I made it.

Okay, I basically laid out all the random stuff I had collected for years, covered it in clear packing tape, taped in a card board insert, and covered it in duct tape.

There are several more pockets down inside, too. I have a chopsticks packet on the strap for my knitting needles too.

I just made a starburst wrapper messenger bag with clear packing tape. First I put the wrappers face down on the tape in a row to make a strip, then did more and taped them together. This makes sheets of wrappers. I've done the same with comics and also magazine pictures. I don't know about the aging though.

I just finished my first one and I'm so happy with it! Took me about 3 years to save up all those wrappers, mind you, mine's a big old shoulder bag and it's not just Starbursts. I covered the wrappers in clear packing tape and reinforced the sides with cardboard inserts, then covered it with duct tape on the reverse. I later added pockets on the inside like I made the outside. It is very sturdy, I have used it for slumber parties and to carry my schoolbooks around, but haven't attempted to stuff it in my locker yet
