Edit: Tutorial at www.geocities.com/craftylike/diy.html
It's the first or second link.









I made this a couple months ago out of Starburst wrappers, a little clear tape, and some cardboard. I didn't even have to eat any Starbursts...I just passed out bags to my friends and told them that if I didn't get the wrappers back, I'd stab them with knitting needles.

I do not lie about knitting needles.

Thanks! Yeah, I just taped it together. I measured a wrapper, then my school books, and figured out how many wrappers per panel I'd need, then made big sheets of Starburst wrappers. Then, I taped the seams, added the cardboard and strap, and was done! The inside is also taped with threaded clear tape, I'm thinking about "lining" it with shiny duct tape.

Altogether, it took me two months. That's including the time it took me to get the wrappers. Once I had them, it took about five hours and three rolls of tape. I got another roll just to make sure it's safe. There are a lot of hidden pockets and things on the inside, too, to hold random pens and notebooks and things.

Thank you so much!!! :-) Y'all are so sweet! I'm making a smaller purse out of either Pez wrappers or Skittles wrappers. Whichever I get first.
