You can make this cute purse/tote from a used container that would otherwise go into the landfill.
Step 1: Plastic Cylinder Into Cute Purse
If you or someone you know takes this fiber supplement you will have the main component for this project. The container for Meta-mucil is a perfect cylinder with a bright orange top. The "label" is a thin plastic covering - easily removed with scissors or an x-acto knife.
Step 2: Materials Needed:
- Plastic cylinder
- Pop Rivet tool
- Pop Rivets
- 7/8" Grosgrain ribbon, two (2) lengths of 22"
- Hand drill and drill bit
Step 3: Prepare Cylinder
- Pop the paper liner out of the lid
- Drill a 1/4" hole in the lid - this is to accommodate ear buds
- Drill a pair of 1/8" holes on three sides of the cylinder - 2" from the edge of the white part of container
