Handmade Upcycled Tobacco Packaging Handbags

I collect tobacco bags and upcycle them into Tobacco Packaging Handbags. Every bag is unique and made from 40 to 60 tobacco bags.

If you know people who use tobacco products, have them save those empty pouches and make these Upcycled Tobacco Packaging Handbags!

First I cut the tobacco bags, fold and weave them with a technique I learn from a YouTube video like this one. Finally, I put zip. The result was a surprise for me too because I am trying to mix colors and create the design. If you don’t have the time or patience to make one, you can pick one up at my Etsy shop.

Tobacco Packaging Handbags are made from strips cut form old tobacco pouches.
Mix and match colors, and it’s okay to use the logo portions too!

You can use the standard zipper pull or make a custom one to match the style of the Tobacco Packaging Handbags you make.

customize the zipper pulls with pom-poms, woven pulls or add beads to your Tobacco Packaging Handbags.
Fluffy pom-pom zipper pulls help open smaller zippers.

Tobacco Packaging Handbags - what packages were they made from? That's the fun part!
The fun part is making people guess what you used to make these handbags.
