this was my atemp at a bag made from 'bg' wraper chain,
but i used magazine pages so the bag would be black and white.







it took so long to make so i dont intend to make another
 so unfortunatly there will be no pictures with this tute.
im sorry if i am unclear please tell me.

ok step 1

cut paper into 2inch by 5 inch rectangles (you will need about 300)

step 2

fold each peice like you would to make a bubble gum wrapper chain
(lengthways in half, unfold, lengthways both edges into the middle crase.

http://www.gumwrapper.com/images/GW1d.jpg
now you have a long thin peice. fold it in half
http://www.gumwrapper.com/images/GW1e.jpg
and then unfold and fold the edges into the middle crease)
http://www.gumwrapper.com/images/GW1f.jpg

step3

make the peices into chains (10x 20 peice long chains(5 for each side)
and 1x 100 peice long chain(to be made into a loop for the bottom sides and handel))

http://www.gumwrapper.com/images/GW1h2.jpg

step4

(appologiese for the crummy drawings hopefully they will be clear enough when you are holding your work in progress)

position 5 of the chains so that all of the ends point up and glue them onto a peice of paper
without getting glue on the edges
(the edges will be that outside of the red line in a later drawing)

cut away the paper so the it cant be seen from the front

do the same to the other 5 but have all of the ends pointing down

now you have the two sides of the bag

step5

fold the outer triangles(those separated by the red line) inwardsso that they sit at 90degrese to the side.

so the the side is square but leave the top of the side alone as it dosnt need to be folded at all

step6

now we need the long chain

the folded in triangles should fit into the gaps between triangles on the long chain use paper and glue to hold them there from the inside (duct tape also works well but is less permanent)

do this to atach both sides to the long chain along the bottom and sides (this is why one side has its ends pointing up and the other down)

i did alot of fudging the bits into place so im sorry if the tute is unclear, just experiment untill it works out

I was in Cozumel over Christmas and I saw tons of purses that look exactly like this!  I asked how much they cost and they told me $35 US dollars!!

I am, of course, going to have to try out this tut now!!

Is anyone else preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'thinking....leftover') wrapping paper! Or, maybe brave the retail establishments for post-christmas marked down stuff.

Thanks for sharing your creation - it's great!

if you use lots of glue then it is quite strong. but not too much at once or it turns into mush, do one layer of glue (onthe inside) and just add more layers untill it feels sturdy. i tend to use a lot of glue just to be sure.

I've seen these before, but have always been too chicken to try it. Thanks for the tute.
Maybe I'll do some experimenting later.

I've been making one of these for a long time.  Really long, like more than a year.  Mine is sewed, or rather laced, together.  Starting at the bottom, I made a gum wrapper chain and fastened the ends together into a circle.  I squished it into a tight oval and laced it together back and forth with heavy thread to make a base, rather like the beginning of a rag rug.  I am building the purse up, row by row, first making a gum wrapper circle, then attaching it--nestling it into the points of the row below and lacing back and forth.  It does take forever, and I'm not completely in love with it.

Here's a tutorial I found on the web:  http://www.candywrapperpurse.blogspot.com/
