AWESOME PURSE OUT OF PLAYING CARDS!!!! Hence the name!
I went to Chapters the other day to get gifts for my friends but I forgot one! (Sorry Sara!!!) Anyway I needed to make her something so I checked out some tutorials on Cut Out and Keep and I found "Trading Card Tote" by Zombie Soup. That was my inspiration for this! :)

Hope you like it!

  • How to make a recycled bag. Playing Card Purse - Step 1
    Step 1

    Grab a deck of cards and figure out how you're going to lay it out. I chose 2x4 for the front, back, and bottom.

    For the sides I chose 2x3.

    Step 3

    FRONT:
    I just lay them out and taped them together on both sides. It's kind of hard to do them all at once, so I suggest you tape two together by themselves, and them tape them on to another pair. Make sure you cover the whole thing, so then it's waterproof and strong.

  • Step 4

    Then, once you finish making 4 pairs and taping them together, make two more like it. These will be the back and the bottom. (Sorry, no pic!)

  • Step 5

    SIDES:
    Well, it's pretty obvious, isn't it? This time just make three pairs. Then tape them. Make two of these (one per side, duh!)

    Step 6

    ASSEMBLY: (Since I don't have anymore cards to use I shall be demonstrating with books) Put the bottom in the middle (so...in this case it would be wonderstruck...a good book. You should read it!), the bottom on the top (Neil Flambe), the front on the bottom (Harry Potter! WOOHOO!!), and the sides on, well, the sides. (The Serpent's Shadow and The Search for Wondla). Then fold them up and tape the edges together! This should make a rectangular thingy with a bottom (a.k.a. a BOXXXXX!!!!)
