* Box Purse

Posted on September 19th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Fun with Lab Supplies, Projects with Instructions.

I made this purse out of a disk-storage box. Since I never use disks anymore, it seemed like the most useful life for it. It’s just the right size for my wallet and some other little things. All you do is find a piece of string/cord/ribbon long enough for a strap and decide where it should attach to the box. Use a big needle to poke a hole in each side of the box. Thread the strap through and tie big knots so it holds. This particular box came with the elastic strap to fasten the flap, but you could certainly add that (or a piece of velcro or something) if you need to. I always get comments when I use it.

    Love this, also it is almost an anti-designer purse, a way to strike back against those overly prices purses of the Beverly Hills set.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
