Why read magazines when you can wear them?

So I made this magazine bag for almost a year now and didn't think to upload it until today.

I hoard EVERYTHING, and when I was eleven I was really into Neopets. I subscribed to the magazines and everything. I've been keeping those magazines for all these years, just because I am unable to throw ANYTHING away. Then I realised that since the paper is really thick and colourful, it would be perfect for a flashy, fun bag.

I weaved the strips together (there are tutorials on this site for that) using elastic string, and then covered it with PVA glue to make it waterproof and a bit stronger. The strap is a string of Christmas decorations, big gold beads. The whole thing is quite tacky but really cute.

It takes a loooong time. I'm going to put 10 hours just to be on the safe side.
