I just wanted to post this in response to Smasysmash's post about the hand bags made of wrappers like this: http://www.ecoist.com/index.asp

I used to do this a lot when I was younger it is unit origami.

Here is an example

and here is a quick tutorial I put together:



If it isn't clear please let me know!

I can't wait to see what you amazing people can do with this.

- I am so impressed by your fantastic craftyness!
Hope it helps,

Brie

Wow! I always wanted to figure out how they made those! Thanks, you rock!

What size squares did you use to start with? And how well do the little "units" hold together once you assemble them?

I used 2 inch square paper but you could go bigger or smaller if you fancied. I used selotape on the back to make sure it all held in place well. ( I think you could also glue the little flap parts into the squares to make it secure too) hope its usefull would love to see what you make with it!

I'm working off of your awesome tutorial, but I am confused about how you connect the pieces together. Could you please explain further?

Hi Guys: Check this out hopefully it explains it a bit better - the display side is the one you dont tuck the arms in.

Thanks for posting, I have seen these in the past and didn't have a clue how to make a wrapper "chain" into a purse, so this explains it well - thanks again!

Is there anyway you could explain each step?

Thank you!!
