THats great!  But Im a little confused, did you put clear tape on each strip of magazine first, or did you do the whole magazine page in tape, then cut?

I cut the strips first, then put the clear tape on. I'm making another one right now out of comic strips, I can take pictures of how I do the tape if you'd like.

Could you please do that? I'm in the process of making a purse myself as well, but every time I try to cover the strips with tape everything gets either broken (the strips) or awfully wrinkled (the tape and/or the strips).
I'm thinking of using something like modge podge now...  Undecided


Here we go. First I have my strip cut.


The sticky part of the tape is facing up, so I lay the strips with the side I want to use down. I use my rotary cutter thing as my surface because it has guidelines which make it much easier to line the strips up with the tape.


So I line the tape up with the lines and take a strip and carefully line it up on the bottom and then gently lower it down, from bottom to top.

And then I continue this until I have a whole bunch on the tape and then I'll cut it off, this way I can do a lot at a time without having to stop and cut after each one.



If you don't get it perfectly lined up with the tape, that's ok because the edges are folded in anyway. Just cut off all the excess tape.


And that's it. It's tedious but I generally do it while watching tv at the commercials.


Thank you guys so much for all the great comments, I'm glad you all like it as much as I do. :-)

Wow! I don't usually like bags like this because I think they look tacky, but this is very classy! I think it's the color scheme and the shininess. And I admire you for being able to sew that zipper on. Great job!

Very chic.  I like that you used tape on it-it will last a long time! Smiley
