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
Clear Duct Tape
2 Small magnets
1 Needle optional ( used to pop a few bubbles)
Glue I used E-6000
Step 2: Measure and Cutting
Cut carefully as not to break the bubbles. It is OK if the bubbles along the seams pop because the tape will cover those areas.
Hem both ends by turning the ends under about 1 inch and fold toward the wrong side of the wrap and tape to secure.
Step 3: Taping the Wrong Side
Cover this side completely with clear Duct Tape. This will give the wrap some strength and weight.
Step 4: Fan Fold the Clutch
You can fold it so the bubbles are at the bottom and top of the bag or have a straight edge. I liked the bubbles at the top of the bag to give it character.
Step 5: Tape the Sides of the Clutch
Tape the other side.
Step 6: Add Magnets and Button
Glue them now.
If a bubble is in the center it is OK to pop it so the button or magnets will lie flat.
