I apologize if someone has already posted something like this.

My friend bought me some candy yesterday, all of which is imported from Japan, and I decided that this one box was way too cute to just throw away. So I covered it in contact paper, poked holes in the sides, added yarn, and turned it into a purse.

It is large enough for my keys and money, but not a whole lot else. My sunglasses won't fit in it.

The two pure white squares are velcro, they work nicely to keep it shut.

I knotted the yarn like it was a hemp bracelet. I intended on giving a link to the snacks at Anime Nation, but my browser has appearantly gone on vacation and is sipping lemonade while I curse and shake my fist at my computer screen. I weep.

Alrighty, I believe that the links should work now. Maybe. I hope.

And here is a link to the snacks on Anime Nation. http://www.animenation.com/49013602239099.html
We bought them at Hastings, which is just a big entertainment store with books, music, movies, and novelty items like these.

I was trying to be serious and informative, but that isn't exactly my forte.

YUM Every Burger! I have saved every burger boxes, but could never think of what to do with them. The boxes aren't all that sturdy on their own though. I wonder if there would be a way to make them permanently stronger?

Either way I love what you did with it!

Yes, it could be smushed very easily and I imagine that it'll slowly die after time.  You could make inserts for it to make it sturdier, but I've noticed that the only bendage on mine is on the lid because of the super extra industrial strength velcro that I used.

I didn't really worry about it when I was making it because this was pretty much something for me to do while watching cartoons and I didn't want it to be too complicated.
