Don’t throw away those old Capri-Sun packets! You can use them to make a nice purse for yourself.


  1. Buy two boxes of Capri Sun drink pouches and drink them.
  2. Remove the excess liquid from the pouches. Get a dish towel and a rolling pin. Place the towel on a table and put the drink pouch on top of it. Roll the drink pouch flat like you would pizza dough. You need to drink and flatten out approximately 27 pouches.
  3. Piece together the pattern of the purse. With a sewing machine, sew four pouches with the bottom of the pouch to the top of another pouch. This will be the bottom of the purse.
  4. Sew three pouches together side by side. Repeat that step for the other side of the purse. The picture above used 3 by 3 pouches for the sides, but you can have virtually as many or as few as you want
  5. Sew each side to the middle two pieces of the bottom.
  6. Bend the end pieces of the bottom up to meet the sides of the purse. Sew the seams closed. This creates a box of Capri Sun.
  7. Sew the last three remaining pouches together, just like the sides of the purse.
  8. Attach this new piece to a long side of the box you have already created. This creates a closing flap to the purse.
  9. Use a ribbon or fabric to make a strap and put snaps on the flap to close the purse.


  • Use a sewing machine and a zig-zag stitch to connect them. Don’t worry, it will not ruin the sewing machine.
  • You can also sew it by hand (more work, but it works just fine).
  • Tape and staples also work to piece a CapriSun purse together.
  • You don’t have to use just 10 CapriSun pouches….the bigger the better!


  • Always be careful when using a sewing machine.
  • If you decide to make this purse you will be the coolest person, at least for a day anyway!
