Okie Dokie ... So how do I start?
Well, I suggest you start to get an idea of what kind of materials you want work. Mexico Originals are created with large rolls of material Candy Wrapper wastes from factories along with the pages of school textbooks recycled. This combination produces an impressive (and expensive) Open your eyes! for bag design companies, but what about the rest of us?
This is what suggest:
Beautiful recycling materials that can be commonly found in your local area. It is the local grassroots approach to recycling ... and produces beautiful results. Think of all papers, plastics and other materials they handle every day. What was incredible bent and intertwined? The sky is the limit really.
Now I know that I like being pampered examples ... so here's a few. Fashion magazines, water bottle labels soda, food packaging and wrappings, ribbons, wrapping paper, toy money, old school coloring books, etc. You name it ... it'll work.
How much material are needed? Put it this way: your average fashion magazine pages will be enough colors to make probably around 2 or 3 medium size bags.
And ... If you happen to be afraid that their materials can be ruined by water ... you can take clear packing tape and cover confidence before cutting to size.
Ummm ... OK ... So what can I do with these materials?
In short order ... for a bag size medium sweet wrapper, you cut your material into approximately 2 "x 4.5" rectangles, folded up in 1 / 2 "x 1" rectangles the "woven" together using the classic technique wrapper chain gum tissue.
Remember that one? It is for centuries, but many have forgotten. These small rectangles "links" are woven into the strings (about 50 to 60 links long) and then joined in a round of "ring".
The rings then be stacked atop one another and sewn together with either strong thread or fishing line with a "zig zag" technique. Once you are satisfied with the height of your portfolio, you can close the bottom of the bag with thread, sew a zipper at the top ... and do one longer chain and sew on a handle.
And this is how to make a bag of candy wrapper. Now maybe that sounds a bit vague or confusing ... but to be honest, it is actually quite simple to do and a real no-brainer once you see how to do ... but it certainly is a bit confusing to explain in right words.
So if you'd rather not fumble around, pulling out your hair trying to just figure it out yourself, just follow me along as I show you how this classic craft is done with this step by step video series to help you get started called How to Make a Candy Wrapper Purse
Good luck, and have fun making your candy wrapper purse!
