I love to make theme purses. This is my packing supply purse. The body is large bubble wrap, the sides packing tape and the handle large rubber bands. The decorative catch is a binding clip. Just don't take it to the library it's kind of loud.

I love it and I'd love to know how it is fastened together?  Did you stitch it or glue it?
It is so unusual and very pretty - but how do you keep it away from the people who just have to pop bubble wrap? Roll Eyes

It's taped together with clear packing tape. The bubbles are on the inside and covered with packing tape, then the tape forms the sides. The body and flap are one long piece of bubble wrap.

As for keeping it away from bubble poppers that's the hard part. I used the big bubble wrap because it takes more effort to pop and people start to pop and the nice ones catch themselves. If I'd have used the small they would have popped it before their brains Came on line. Lol
