1  Letter Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tinfoil queen on: September 03, 2006 11:39:44 PM

I made this purse for my friend Lucy...hence the profusion of L's... I was inspired by all the initial bags and wallets I've seen by fancy designers. I cut the letters out of old magazines (which took a very long time), then taped them with packing tape and coated the inside with black duct tape.

2  paper crane mobile in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by tinfoil queen on: September 03, 2006 11:27:13 PM

So, I'd already finished my 1000 paper cranes and was waiting for a chance to find a hunking big branch to hang them from, when I realized that I actually had more cranes and a small branch already lying around.  I had already perfected my crane-stringing technique and decided to make a quick mobile for my friend's birthday:

I used plain thread to string the cranes, spacing them with beads, sequins, and the odd button or two. I then broke the branch in half, wrapped copper wire around it, and hung the four strings with copper wire off the crossed branches.

Sorry for the blurry, dim picture, but I gave it to my friend the night I made it.

3  my awesome starburst/movie ticket stub/duct tape/random things bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tinfoil queen on: February 23, 2006 07:40:25 PM
Okay, I basically laid out all the random stuff I had collected for years, covered it in clear packing tape, taped in a card board insert, and covered it in duct tape.

Other side:

There are several more pockets down inside, too. I have a chopsticks packet on the strap for my knitting needles too.
