For my purses I have been using key rings and I just put masking tape over the hole and then put the key ring on and take the masking tape back off. I was thinking of using the binder rings myself and was trying to figure out a way to keep them opening, and someone (a non-crafty) someone suggested using E6000 on the ends where they join. I think I am going to try it and see how it works. I don't use the top of the record for the handle though. I make a fabric handle, which I think is more useable, and I would make them like yours if I had the talent. The first one I tried broke, so I kind of gave up and have been doing it my way ever since. You can see my handles on my post

Thank you! Smiley

I've been thinking about that too, i just don't know wat E6000 is called here in Holland.
I know the handles are hard to make, you have to have the right tools to make them. I actually hate makin' them, so I've made some with fabric handles aswell Wink But I still think these ones with the the record as handle look the coolest...
Your bag looks great!!!!

I was gifted a dremel from someone I work with and it has some attachments that may make life easier. When I find the time I think I will use one of my old cut off pieces to try and cut the handle. I like the fabric handles personally because I can sling the bag over my arm so I have my hands free. I agree that the cut handles look awesome!
Thanks for the compliment! Yours is awesome too! I am so excited too. I just bought about 150 records for $15, so I have plenty of crafting to do!

My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of many males to my place of residence and/ or employment, and they declare that its quality far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it far surpasses yours. I could convey to you the recipe, but i would have to demand compensation.

YarnWranglerC, I've been using a dremel for the handles, it does make it a lot easier!

so cute- I really have to start searching for the tutorials on how to make one- I've seen so many different methods- between cutting and bending records. So crazy cute though.

Love it, Im so shocked when I see people making vinyl purses that are SEWED through the vinyl.. no patience for that here!
I dont think I could do that to Elvis records though.. so far Ive only defaced (so to speak) records I kind of like. if I wouldnt like it I wouldnt want to wear it, but if I liked it too much then I would just want to keep the record!

What if you could use some sort of crimping tool like what they use on pigeon legs for tagging them or something along the lines of that on the opening of the binder ring.  With the use of pliers, not sure if something like that exsists or not.  Just an Idea.
