Introduction: Metal Lip Purse

Well, first you will need at least 500 of these tabs to make a decent sized purse. This one is about 6 inches high and maybe 8 inches wide.

    I have tried making a bracelet out of these before. I never even thought about making a purse! Very creative! imadeit101, the YouTube video helped me understand how to tie the tabs together better, Thank You!

    How did you attach the tabs together? I have many pop tabs and would love to give it a go.

    you could use a variety of things to hold the lids together, string, or metal rings.

    It gets really complicated when I try to explain it so here is a link to a youtube video that explains it really well.

    You basically just add rows on top or bottom of that one to make the purse however tall you want it and you make it as wide as you want by the length. you would make to rectangles or squares of these tabs, one for the front and one for the back.

    For the sides i like to make one long one that is two to three tabs wide, depending on how much space you want inside, that wraps all the way around one side, the bottom and the other side and hook it on. I have a friend who bent the part of the tabs to make it look neater. Here are some pictures.
