Ok, so I had seen candy wrapper purses online and at craft fairs and always liked them. And then somehow I found some websites that showed how to make them so I went decided to make mine using magazine pages instead of candy wrappers, so I went through a few magazine and ripped out all of the (mostly) black, white or gray pages and ta daa...made a wristlet.

After I cut out all of the pieces to the right size, I covered them with clear packing tape to make the bag water resistant and so that it would be sturdier and last longer. [More info about this on page 3]


   
   
   


Here are some of the websites that I found useful:

I love the way it looks in black and white.  How did you attach the zipper?

Ditto! The use of the black, white and grey color scheme makes it look very classy! Did you just glue the zipper in?

And thanks for the helpful links!

The zipper is sewn in. That was by far the most frustrating part, but once I got it started it was easy. You can see how to do it in the first link.

Thanks! I'll go back and read the pages- I just skimmed the pics and then saved the pages Wink

I never would have guessed that you could sew it in...

THats great!  But Im a little confused, did you put clear tape on each strip of magazine first, or did you do the whole magazine page in tape, then cut?
