Can make a pretty awesome purse!

A bit of backstory. In science we have to make something to hold a report on enviromental issues in out of recycled stuff, things you would normally throw out, etc. But I couldn't just stick with the report-cover-out-of-a-cereal-box, oh no! I'm a craftster! I needed something that would stand out (hopefully!) I got a pile of wrappers from my aunt's house, two rolls of tape, and got to work.
Two hours or so later, I had this:


Inside, honestly the best picture I could get. The back of chip wrappers isn't the easiest thing to photograph.


The body is chocolate bar wrappers, the inside is two chip bags (Silver side up) and the flap is a chip bag as well. The button is a soda pop bottle cover with two hole poked into it, and the handles, what the cover is 'sewed' on with and the strings holding it down is a cut-up plastic bag. I know that won't hold it well, but I wanted most of it to be recycled, except for the tape, of course Smiley And I probably won't be using it much outside of the project. I'd need to make a stronger one. I learned alot through this one, anyway!

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

EDIT: I finally got it back, and I got 100% Cheesy

This is totally cool, I've seen similar "purses" in high end gift shops in the city.
