We all have a board game that is missing pieces, or a deck of cards that is missing a 4 of hearts. Instead of throwing them away ( or recycling them!!!) why not make this cool upcycled card purse!
Here is what you will need.
1 deck of cards, they can be anything, Poker, Uno, Monopoly property, etc. (We had a set of Uno that seems to be missing about 20 cards.)
Clear tape ( we used the clear tape on this project, however after finishing it we thought that contact paper or self stick laminate would work better. Not that the clear tape didn't work, we just thought it would be easier to cut out the shape in one large piece then several pieces. You can find contact paper and self stick laminate usually in near kitchen items.)
Something to trace out the handle
A cutting surface
First you want to cut out the pattern for your purse. We used two old purses Mrs. Awesome had lying around to make our template. There is no right or wrong here. We found this metal thing in our catch all drawer and used it to trace out the opening for the handle.
Start again by making Duct Tape fabric. Place one card down vertically and cut a piece of Duct tape just longer then the length of the card. We suggest you over lap the cards by at least an inch. This over lap of tape is what will connect the sides with the front and back pieces you just made.
Once you have the card sheet set, turn it over so the sticky part is facing up, and trim the duct tape. Remember to leave a little over hang to attach this strip to the front and back panel pieces.
