My neighbor moved last summer and she gave me some green bubble wrap. She asked me what I was going to use it for and naturally I said:  "instructables  I think it would make a cute clutch or cosmetic bag!" I just did not know how I was going to pull it off. This instructable will show you how to make an unusual cosmetic bag or clutch using bubble wrap, clear duct tape, glue, magnets, and a button! It is quick and easy to make and is very functional!  Let us get started!

Step 1: What You Will Need

Bubble Wrap cut slightly larger than what size clutch you want. Mine was cut 23" X 9"
Clear Duct Tape
1 Button
2 Small magnets 
1 Needle optional ( used to pop a few bubbles)
Tape measure
Glue I used E-6000

After using this for a couple of days it is holding up very well. The magnets work and it is much more durable than you might think! I will be making different versions in the near future! Have a splendid day! <br>sunshiine
<p>This is one of the most lovely innovative ideas I've found in a long time. Talk about reusing, repurposing, recycling!!! You hit all three in one. I would have to have the bubbles inside...they guys in the family couldn't resist the pop pop popping of the bubble wrap ;-). Susan </p>
Thanks so much Susan for the compliment~ My daughter-in-law really liked this. She has not had any trouble with the bubbles popping but it was quite tempting even for me hehe. Thanks so much for stopping by and do have a safe and happy summer~love your handle~<br>sunshiine

While this is awesome, I would not be able to resist popping the bubbles...
I have great news for you! I tried making one by ironing the wrap after popping the bubbles! It will work and you still have the great fun in popping all the bubbles! I would add additional layers of clear tape to the wrong side of the wrap. Thanks for commenting and do have a splendorous day! <br>sunshiine
I have to laugh. I was in the garage yesterday and saw some bubble wrap and thought, &quot;I wonder what I could make with that.&quot; Now I know.
Thanks so much for stopping by and for commenting! Have a great day! <br>sunshiine

Such a great idea....I absolutely need one of these for my beloved electronic devices.
It would work great for that! Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Have a splendorous day! <br>sunshiine
I really like it with the light in it. Would be great for the night time scene downtown or something. Probably wouldn't misplace it as easily if it was lit up like that! <br>Very neat!
