Candy Wrapper Purse Day 1

Ok so yesterday I measured and cut out strips from an old Collections Etc magazine I had. And then I had to go to the store for some waterproofing tape. Anyway I completed about 1 1/2 rows yesterday and I think all the strips I cut out and folded will make about 3 to 4 rows. Here is what they look like: Sorry for the bad pic but I had to use my cell phone to take the picture.

Candy Wrapper Purse

Go to fullsize imageGo to fullsize imageGo to fullsize image

Has anyone seen  these? I think they are just so cute! (Pics taken from yahoo search) But to go out and buy one could cost you over $100.00 USD! YIKES! So I searched through our all favorite Youtube and found instructions on how to make one! So that's what I am going to be doing. Though as I don't really eat candy or chips and those do not have those materials I have found ones made from magazines even! So time for me to dig out those old magazines and turn them into something useful! Don't worry ladies, no Cross Stitch magazines will be harmed in the making of this purse. Interested? Here is the link on how to fold each page and the best video i have found yet on connecting them all. I'm using the 11 cm by 5 cm sizes btw.

How to Fold each piece.

How to put it all together

I'll post pictures later on in the week of my progress

Crocheted flower headband


My younger sister saw this website where this lady makes headbands and puts these fake flowers on them. She wants about $8.00 USD for each one and when i saw them I was like I can do that for way cheaper! So here is my first attempt with a fake flower I already had on hand. I took it apart and added a shiny button for the center.

I think when DH returns home we will go fake flower shopping. :-) Heather wants me to make some for Mina. I love the top picture of Kiley! This also qualifies as my first finish of the year! woohoo!
