Introduction: Recycled Capri-Sun Coin Purse

I decided to recycle a used Capri-Sun Juice drink pouch and convert it to a simple coin purse.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials Needed

We used an empty CapriSun pouch and some velcro tabs found in the craft section of wal-mart.

Step 2: Respecting the Pouch

Start by folding the pouch in half and creasing it.

Cut off the top sealed edge of the pouch. (just above the straw insertion point)

Respect the pouch! Clean it out. ( We found out the hard way that saving pouches can get stinky!)

Step 3: Pouch Surgery

Using the crease in the pouch from the earlier step, cut out the back section of the pouch half way down.

Step 4: Lets Stick Together

Using the velcro, stick one type of fastener to the single layer flap right below the straw hole.

The matching velcro piece is easiest to apply by fastening the velcro pieces to each other and then folding down the flap to apply the sticky side.

Step 5: Bring on the Money

Fill the pouch with change and close.
