Plastic Bottle Box

greenupgrader Soda Bottle Coin Purse

Yesterday we cut a plastic bottle to make a knitting loom, today we can make a box from the cut off bottom of the bottle.
It’s not a real instruction, but when you look closely at the photos you can see that the plastic bottoms are perforated at the edge and that a zipper is sewn into the holes.

Addendum: There are instructions now, you can find the English ones here (thanks, Nina).

I’ve seen the photo and found it time-consuming to find the source:
I found the link to the plastic bottle box:
via Need More Fiber,
via Dollar Store Crafts (they have more great ideas!),
via greenUPGRADER,
I thought that I’d never reach an end ;-))

By the way I suggest to take a look a the flickr group TRASHION NATION, they also have great ideas!

Cassette Tape Coin Purse

I stll have some old cassettes I don’t listen to anymore. But because I’m always reluctant to throw anything away I’m thinking of making some purses from the cassettes by following the tutorial at craftster ;-)

The description how she made the purse is somewhere in the thread.

Paper Wallet

unikatissima Paper Wallet

After the duct tape wallet and the tetrapak coin purse I’d like to present today an ingenious tutorial on how to fold a paper wallet.
On the photo you see one of my test wallets, folded from an official envelope with window and blue patterned lining.
Envelopes are unfortunately too narrow, I can’t put in an unfolded bank note, but it was fun to fold ;-)
I folded others from DIN A4 paper covered in gift wrapping and I really like the size.
One has got a little pocket glued on, another got its sides glued together. One has been covered in self-adhesive book foil, another has been glued after been covered in transparent gift wrapping.
All work fine and seem to be robust (the author of the tutorial writes about this aspect, too).
The only thing I miss is a ‘real’ coin purse with closure.
But the best is: the folding is done in no time ;-))

It is e.g. a wonderful wrapping if you want to give money.

Es wäre z.B. eine tolle Verpackung für ein Geldgeschenk.
