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/
