Do you have a passion for purses? Be the designer and create a one-of-a-kind Model Magic® handbag!
Build an armature for your purse with recycled cardboard. Carefully cut the cardboard into two equal squares and one rectangle, all having the same width. When cutting the cardboard pieces, keep in mind that the purse will be slightly larger than the armature when completed.
Place one cardboard square on each side of the rectangle so the longest edges touch. Line up the edges evenly and secure them in place with clear adhesive tape.
Fold both squares up until the top edges touch, and tape those edges together as well. You should now have a 3D triangle armature with the rectangle as the base!
Cover the armature with a thin layer of Crayola® Model Magic®, pressing gently with your fingers.
Flatten a small handful of Model Magic on a hard surface, like a table. You can also flatten Model Magic with a rolling pin or by gently rolling a Crayola Classic Marker over it. Mold or use scissors to carefully cut the flattened Model Magic into pieces slightly larger than the armature. Drape the pieces over the armature like fabric to form the front, sides, and back of the purse. Model Magic that is fresh from the pack will stick to itself. Dried pieces can be glued together.
Enhance your purse with designer features! Roll long, thin snakes with Model Magic, and twist or braid them together to add an attractive accent over the seams of the purse. For a stitched look, attach a very thin Model Magic snake to the purse and press into it with the tip of toothpick. Make quilted textures by pressing tools, like a craft stick or fork, into the Model Magic.
Be creative with your design! Try out blending or swirling Model Magic colors together for exciting effects. Embellish your purse with added flare like buckles, jewels, and beads.
Allow 1-3 days for your finished purse to dry completely.
