Recycled Coin Purse




Introduction: Recycled Coin Purse

This is a recycled coin purse and I will show you how to make it.

Equipment : 

- a milk or juice carton
- a pencil
- a ruler
- scissors
- electrical tape
- double sided tape
- adhesive Velcro

Step 1:

Flatten a juice carton and cut the ends.

Step 2:

Divide the juice carton into three parts using a ruler and a pencil.

Step 3:

On the first one-third of the juice carton, cut up the juice carton's sides and back. You have a strip which will close the coin purse.

Step 4:

To obtain the extendible gussets, fold inside the juice carton's sides.

Step 5:

Fold into three parts.

Step 6:

Cover the edges with electrical tape.

Step 7:

Put a bit of double sided tape between the two leaves.

Step 8:

On the strip's inside and the coin purse's outside, put down a bit of adhesive Velcro.
