We all need cases & pouches to keep our most special items safe. Whether it is to hold our glasses, our marble collection, or our trading cards in, we all need a safe place to hold our prize possesions so that they don't get damaged or ruined. You don't need to run out to the store to buy an expensive case because there are simple ways to make a holder or purse with items fro around the house...such as plastic containers or cardboard paper towel rolls...where there is a will there is a way...and your holder will be amazing. Use your creativity and build upon our crafts to make a case that is very special to you.
Start off by finding a pint-sized clear plastic container, like one that you find in a chinese soup container. Punch a hole on either end of the cap as seen in picture a. Then put lid on the container and push a hole 1/2" from the top edge, that correspond to where the lap hole is...see picture c. You can decorate the cap with shells, glitter, beads, or other decorative items by gluing them down as seen in picture b. Tie a knot in string, cord, or ribbon and pull it up thru side of container, then bottom of lid. Then push itdown thru the hole in the top of the lid and into the container and from inside of container push it through the container hole on the other side and then tie another knot. You now have a handle.
1 round or square box with lid, 1 shoestring, enough colored paper to cover box, flowers cut from magazines, paste, adhesive or masking tape, scissors, paper punch, 2 large beads or buttons, cretonne or wallpaper may also be used Procedure: Cover round or square box with colored paper and paste on colored designs, flowers, or pictures of your favorite cartoon characters, etc. Cover lid of box and hinge it to box with adhesive or masking tape so it will not become lost. Punch a hole in each side of box. Cut shoestring in half. To keep the box from tearing, tie a knot in the cut end of the shoestring, run a large bead or button on the string and then run string through the box hole from the inside. Add another bead or button and tie knot as close to box as possible. Tie shoestring ends together for handle. Children may also cover boxes with decorative paper, wallpaper, or plastic.
