No Sew Heart Coin Purse

Who doesn't need a little heart coin purse to stash some spare change?  This one is super easy to make because you don't need a sewing machine......only my favorite, awesome, magic glue!  The best part about this little purse is that you can make it any size and shape and the chain is optional.  Make a star, a cat, even a big floppy square.  It's all about how it comes together.  Make sure to check out the video if you get a chance.  Have fun, make messes and don't forget to Make Your Mark! 
xoxo, Mark

  1. Love this fun project. Actually ran out and bought the materials. Wish me luck. Thanks for always being my inspiration!!!!

  2. I can't wait to see what you make Jess!

  3. Very cute. I am going to try and make this. Can I use tacky glue for this project?

    1. Hi Pattie, E-6000 is truly the only glue that will really work for this project. I've used Tacky Glue and it's a water based glue and I'm afraid it would not hold as well.

  4. I truly love the step by step. E6000 is the glue! I am hooked! Or zipped up with E6000!
