A Quick and Easy DIY Coin Purse!

Going to a dicey neighborhood and want to leave the wallet at home, or just want a secure place to place all your loose change? Here's the Lomographic DIY solution!

It doesn’t sound extravagant but if you want a functional coin purse, just load some film in your camera and use the canister it came with! No need for super glue, wires, torches, or cement. Just pop it open, put your change in, and chuck it in your pocket or bag. Now there’s no need to have all your change cluttering up your work space. Admittedly it’s not pretty, but it works like a charm!

    Simple/great idea. I am mad at myself for not thinking of this (I can finally do away with the ziplock bag I have been using - LOL).
