To make the flap closure, you can make a pattern to transfer onto the flap or just eyeball it.  The flap needs to be that half inch smaller than the front on each side or the handle won't fit properly.   Using a scissors or the Xacto knife, cut out your flap design.
<p>Otima ideia,https://lekecolors.blogspot.com.br</p>
<p>i'm going to share this on my facebook page in hoping everyone can make some. thanks again for sharing. this idea, i will be looking at all the plastic bottles with all the diffrent colors in diffrent ways how i could make a cute purse. and they don't have to be for little girls.since every women has a little girl living in them.they are great for all ages,thanks. im really excited to start tonight. love donise feb 22,2015</p>
<p>I agree to that doniseg because it's not like a little girl can't have a tiny purse and that a women can't eather.</p>
<p>Thank you for your kind words. I would love to see a picture =)</p>
<p>feb 22,2015 wow, i knew if i saved all my plastic shamppo bottles and other. things. i could find something neat to make and these are really neat and fun.thank you for sharing. love donise god bless you amen</p>
Wow! That is so cool!
<p>really really cute. trying them today :-) thanks you</p>
I made one for my little sister and she loves it!
I'm so glad to hear it. Thanks for telling me =)
These are super cute! I want to make some! Thanks for the great idea!
these are amazingly 'cute'...looking fwd to making one for my granddaughter!
These look like the perfect party favor for my daughter's 4th birthday party. It will be a my little pony party, so they will coordinate to the ponies really well!!! Thank you for the great idea!!!<br>
I just made three of these (I knew there was a reason I was saving all those empty bottles). <br>I found that the bigger the bottle, the harder it was to cut because the plastic was thicker. But it was a lot easier than I thought to cut the edges smoothly. I just used scissors and it worked fine.<br>Also I have these drinkable yogurt containers that are square that I cut to made a variation of a take out container- cut a semi-circle on each side with a slit. <br>And I tried using wired ribbon for a handle on one- also looked very cute.<br>I'm planning on using these as little gift bags, that is if my daughter will give them back to me.
I'm smiling because my daughter took all the ones I made too =)
Brilliant! Thanks for sharing!
They are adorable! The semi-transparent one is my favorite!
Thanks. You know, that is the first one I made, so it's my favorite also =)
So adorable !! just curious before i start.. are the plastic cut edges safe or lil ones? has your daughter ever gotten cut by the edges or anything? thanks!!
Thanks and the edges are not sharp. If you have any jagged edges, you can easily smooth them out with a scissors =)
I love your ideas! Very clever and so cute. Kudos. I want to make some with/for my granddaughter. I think she will love this craft.
Thanks =)
Those are so cute, &amp; clever too! I wish my girls weren't in their 20s!
Absolutely Lovely. your &quot;extra' ideas are great too. I am looking for appropriate bottles right now. Bye.
You have really blown my mind with this idea. They are so flippin cute. Thank you so much for this post. My lil one will adore owning one if not more of these purses. =) Getting to work on this right now!!
I am so glad you like it and would love to see a finished picture.
These are really cute!
Wow!! How did you get the printing off the bottles? The purses look super clean.
Not all, but many bottles have the printing and information on a very thin sticker and it is quite easy to peal off. I stick to that kind of bottle for this project. Thanks for the comments.
Cute! What a great reuse project.
I wish I had thought of this when I was younger! Well that or my parents - I will make these cute little purses anyway.. and... oh that is so cute!
