Making Purses Out of Candy Wrappers

I have seen some origami "fabric" made out of sweet papers (candy papers), but cannot find out how to make them. I want to make a handbag or purse with these for a recycling show due here in Wrexham in June.


I cannot find any instructions for the origami, how to make into "fabric", or how to make the purse. However, it is the origami part I really really want to know how to do. Does anyone know where I can get these instructions please?
