This is an absolutely awesome and inspiring site.  This is my first completed project since my discovery of Craftster so I hope I post ok.  This is a mini-tote I made for my niece (60 Cycle Hum is her dad's rock band).  I used a Laminator, Foil Tape, Eyelets, Key rings & Chain.  This was my first time using foil tape.  Very interesting this product.  Also, very sticky, but I see many crafty uses for the stuff.

The tape is about 2" wide.  It is very sticky.  I think it's used for air conditioner installation. I found it next to the duct tape at the hardware store.  I was originally going to make a duct tape purse.  I printed my picture logo on photo paper.  For the sides and bottom I used card stock. The back I just used a left over piece of laminate, so the bag is clear on one side. I laminated all my pieces and trimmed each with a remainder of about a 1/4" laminate on each edge.   It's kind of like sewing.  I just used tape to attach the seams instead of thread.  I used my ruler and exacto knife to get the right size.  Maybe this diagram will help.
