I want to make a purse out of a monopoly board and i was wondering how i would attach fabric to the borad for the sides?

I'm on a continous search for my brain.

Michael's Craft Stores have Monopoly and Candy Land Game board scrapbook paper. I have made several purses using these papers and clear vinyl. I will try to get pics posted

i think using the book purse tutorial idea is a great way to go since the boards are so thick. you may have to trim the sides of the board where you cut it in order to make the edges look cleaner but you could glue on some hem tape or biding or use electrical tape, duct tape...

here's the tut for the book purse:


using a game board for a bag is such a great idea - good luck!

I've made some using iron on vinyl and scrapbook paper. Pictures of one are posted on here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12458.0 In this one, I actually printed out covers to a book, but you can use scrapbook paper in place of that. I used scrapbook paper for the sides and bottom. This has turned out to be an incredibly popular gift, and I have since made  Beatles, Winnie the Pooh, Sleeping Beauty, Sound of Music, and Harry Potter versions.

One recommendation: if you can find the glossy finish therm o bond iron on vinyl, use that. I used the matte finish for the rest of my bags cause I couldn't find any more glossy, and the matte doesn't seem to hold up as well/look as nice after a while.
