101 things to do with old Coin Purses

Well maybe only 3 things... First I have business card holders. Easy to make, simply embellish with some of your favorite things. Make sure they are wide enough for the cards before purchase. I like them because they are thinner than the usual card holders, and slip in a pocket or small purse easily.

Or you can make a hanging art collage as I've done below. This one hangs in my craft room.
My final idea is as a necklace. And the good thing about this is that you can use any size, and if they are the business card size, they can still hold your business cards :) Double Duty...
Do you have any other ideas for old Coin Purses?


Speaking of coin purse necklaces. Here are a couple of fun ones I recently made up.

Love the coin purses! The larger ones would be perfect for that collection of stuff that always ends up in the bottom of your purse. (chapstick, bandaids, measuring tape). Any ideas for old glasses cases? I just found a bunch.

Love them hanging on the mirror. I would love to see about 12 of them in a neat pattern (3x4) attached to an old piece of wood, so you could still open them for jewelry storage, coins. craft supplies? Maybe attach with tacks through the inside?? Whatcha think?

I love these ideas. I have about 1/2 dozen stored away in my studio, one of the many things I buy when I see (when the price is right). I am going to fix one up for business cards and I would love to try and make a necklace. I haven't done much jewelry but this might be a good place to start.
