Does anyone know how to make a  paper chain into make a purse? I found this one at http://www.taxcosilver.com/catalog/sec/product/default.aspx?prodid=6&pathid=1 but can't figure out how to do it. I found how to do the chain but can't figure out how to make it more than one row wide. (http://www.gumwrapper.com/build.htm). if anyone knows how to do this can you please help me out? thanks a billion.

*sorry this isn't a very clear question but it's early and i didn't get much sleep*

i know i've seen something like this somewhere.... erm..... but i've been surfing around this site so much over the last few weeks that haven't a clue now where it was. Sad

If i find it again i'll let you know, but in the meantime, could the instructions for the "money-wallet" (made out of dollar bills, i think) be a start? I found it in the blog, the link is www.moneywallet.org

One day whilst I was walkin'
a-walkin' through the park
a hickory caught my eye
with the most attractive bark
nervous, i approached it
eyeing branch to root
anxious, can't believe it
THIS TREE IS FUCKING NUDE!!!!

so...
take off all your clothes and
find a tree to fuck and
wrap your legs

my fiance is in prison. he says some of those guys are really damn creative. someone just sold him a picture frame made from commisary slips. i almost want to go to jail so i can see what theyre doing Tongue its fascinating when people create amazing things out of stuff most people would look at as garbage.and how creativity can come out in the most unlikely places. i read an article a long time ago about a chinese guy that was arrested for being an illegal alien and he started making sculptures out of toilet paper and got to stay in the country on an artist visa.
