– Thrifted purse (with flat sides!)
– Metallic spray paint
– Thick nail file (an old one is fine)
– Strong craft glue/E-6000
– Plastic sandwich bag
– Old CD’s
(2 was more than enough for me. Use more for larger purses.)
– Old magazines/newspaper
– The outdoors!
– Hammer (optional/if necessary/not shown)
BE VERY CAREFUL with this! If you can’t seem to break the CD with your own two hands, don’t strain yourself. Try taking a hammer to them on your driveway or sidewalk instead. Or ask someone else to break them a few times.
4) If there are any sharp edges, file them down with the nail file. When I did this, there was only one piece that had a bent sharp edge that definitely needed some filing down. Otherwise, most of the pieces were fairly blunt.
(If you’re wondering, I sprayed the BACK side of the CD pieces. In other words, the graphic on the CD was facing down.)
