  3. Step 3 3

    i chose to fold it in fours (sorry if you cant really make out the pic i used the flash)

  4. Step 4 4

    i line the folded pages up and put a piece of tape at the bottom of each page so it easier it weave the paper through it

  5. Step 5 5

    then i start weaving the pages together

  6. Step 6 6

    there will be extra pieces of paper that aren't covered when you are done weaving the pages just cut off the extra pieces

  7. Step 7 7

    cover the whole side with tape.

  8. Step 8 8

    turn it over and tape the back too.

  9. Step 9 9

    cut the extra tape off. then i cut four more pieces of tape and put it on the edge of one side and tape it to the back so it covers the edges.

  10. Step 10 10

    repeat those steps until you have all five sides of the purse don't forget to make two of the sides and the bottom smaller then the other two sides.
