After the shampoo purse another good idea by Rolf.
Rolf says: “Packagings need to be appealing for the consumer, for this reason they are often very attractive and colourful in their design. Further more the materials need to be sturdy to protect the content. It is such a pitty that most packagings are only made for a short existence and then thrown away.
Many different sorts of coffee, no matter if they are beans or ground, and even petfood are shrink-wrapped into multiple layers of metalfoil tubes. Those foils have a melting glue layer on the inside, to close them fast and vacuum-tight.
I create my purses by folding this foil tube and using the melting glue to put different parts together with the iron. It is aswell possible to sew the material. To use the right logos as closure, I fold their small sides on the inside and fuse the package opening to build the bottom of the purse. For the money-pockets I reduce the backside of the packaging (including the folding) to the prefered purse height. But the front side needs to stay longer to use it then as the closure. If you revet the whole with foil left-overs it not only rises the stability but brings nice and colourful accents on the inside. What is even more important: it allows you to build a dividing wall. Like this you can make a purse with two divisions.
As the foils are not actually created for purses it is possible to put logos and other details either on the front- or the inside. In some cases you need to fuse many different parts together. With a pre-designed pattern you cut all elements and fuse them after. The melting temperature differs from foil to foil, so it is important to make a test fuse before.”
