I've been lurking for a few weeks, and just joined the site about ten minutes ago...anyways, I got the most ridiculous idea to make a "purse" out of a jelly bean box. It's rather tiny (which is why it's slightly impractical), but it's just too cute so I had to post it!

I started with a leftover jelly bean tin....

....and a gift bag.

I threaded one of the ribbon handles from the gift bag through these holes.

Then I glued down some old checkered fabric on the inside.

Since it's so small, I'm thinking it could be a change purse, or just a purse for minimalists. Anyways, how did I do for my first time?

really cute... you might not want to use it for change or it will probably make a large clunking sound.  Smiley
