My friend's birthday was coming right around the corner,  Roll Eyes  hehehe! She had been looking at the gum wrapper chain purses for a long time, but could never afford them...

This was my opportunity! Cheesy

I wanted to make her one, but I had no clue what to make it out of...until. I remembered my sister still had almost a whole roll of caution tape from a girls night at my church.  And it just so happened that we both went  Wink  so not only did it create an epic looking purse, but also a really cool sentimental thing Smiley

Here's the purse...It measures about 9 inches by 7 and took exactly 68 ft. 10 in. of  caution tape to make Cheesy  It has a loop for a wrist strap (Sorry for not the best quality photo's. my friend took them with her cell phone and sent them to me because I forgot to take some. ooooops!!)

And here's the front view, it has a set-in zipper that's bright yellow to match.  Along with the loop strap I put a little clip so she can clip her keys or whatever to it Smiley

She absolutely loved it!!! It was definitely worth working 2 full days on it Cheesy  Haha I started 2 days before her birthday (Aug 9) because I was camping with her the week before ^.^

Hope you guys like it!!!

P.S. I was going to make a caution tape jacket to match the purse, but I ran out of time D:

How did you attach the pieces to make it into a purse. I have tons of these little things made, but can't figure out how to attach them?. Awesome job btw.

you did an incredible job keeping it square and adding the zipper! I'm inspired... Smiley
