I prefer to start with the bottom so you can lace from both the right and wrong sides.  I made a loop of paper chain, folded it in half and matched up the points.  Then laced from the center toward one end, (and left the string dangling) then the center toward the other end.  Then squashed and finished the corners.  Then flipped it over and laced it again on the "wrong" side.  Much stronger bottom that way.

My favorite directions are from here:

I remember a friend and I making the ropes after watching 28 Days in high school... can't wait to learn to make a clutch!

Oh, I've made one of these before! I recommend using the chip bags, candy wrappers, or even soda bottle labels for this, because the magazine pages aren't waterproof in the least, and they rip so much, unless you coat it with Modge Podge or something.
