Hello.

This is my first post at Craftster.  I've been cruising around the site lately thanks to a friend.  Anywho, yesterday I got really really motivated and sat down and made an entire purse.

I made it using only a deck of old maid cards, three kinds of tape, a mardi-gras necklace, and a lot of patience.





I thought you other crafters might enjoy this one.

The cards are all covered in clear packing tape, the inside is all duct tape [to keep it sturdy!] and the edging was done with blue painters tape.  That took for flippin ever, that edging.  Working with tape gets frustrating.  haha.

 Grin   Grin   Grin  It's wonderful!!! Is the purse itself really usable though, in strength? or would you need more reconstruction on the inside?

Thanks!!  Cheesy
