    If I were you I would use a take out box and maybe use broken up cd pieces to decorate...rather then leaving them to hang...

    sounds great . . but as i'm studying textiles the emphasis is more on creating something completely unrecognisable from 'rubbish' . . the takeout bag idea is really cute but it's not really much different from the original box :unsure:

    as for juicebox bags . . everyone is making one and it really isn't too original :rolleyes:

    i have actually made some samples using broken up cds and it looked gorgeous and they aren't too sharp . . i can always file them
    :innocent:

    Why not using natural fibers?
    Palm trees seem to have some woven-fabric thing on their tops ..you could saw them!

    Personally it seems around where I live that everyone "makes" purses..I'm kinda sick of it lately. But the cd purse seems to me that it would be lovely. hehe I want one. :flower:

    I'm sorry! Silly me had the idea that everyone has access to palm trees! (Just because here you can get palms everywhere!)

    I think the cd idea sounds great. I entered a challenge last year sponsored by Red Bull that had to use 100 cans of their product. I made payettes out of the aluminum. I wanted to make a Paco Robanne style dress but really didn't have the time. I know an artist that makes bags out of innertubes, no, not the typical Little Earth ones. We have some awesome metal bags in the store I work in from another artist, Natalie Mcluggage. She has a website, I will try to find it so you can see them.

    Try to make one out of tires! I thought of something looking like a boat, or banana, with some grafitti, maybe in red...
    I guess the only problem will be findin' a tire which is light enuff :rolleyes: But I guess you could manage, :p
