about two years ago I made a dear friend of mine a purse out of a box from Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. It was okay, not the greatest purse ever, but functional.
Her boyfriend is about to go on tour in Japan and my friend wanted to bring a gift to the promoter of her boyfriend's shows. She wanted something that represented the Pacific Northwest (where we all live) but didn't want to do something typical.
Portland, Oregon is the second largest consumer of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer outside of Milwaukee. So the Japanese concert promoter is getting her very own (new and improved) Pabst Blue Ribbon purse.
Its made from a few boxes (three or four), some refrigerator tubing, some blue ribbon (get it?), blue fabric, some tape (masking and duct) and a crap-ton of hot glue.
