As the weather gets warmer, we're seriously craving some juicy watermelon. Try out this DIY watermelon purse to satisfy your artsy sweet tooth!

Step 1: Fold a paper plate in half, then cut in half on the fold line.

Step 2: Sketch out a rind around the curve, and a bite mark on the straight side of your plate.

Step 3: Cut out the bite mark.

Step 4: Decorate! You can use any materials you have at home. Don't forget to add seeds!

Step 5: Place the decorate slice on top of the blank slice, and mark where the bite overlaps. Color this section black.

Step 6: Use a stapler or tape to attach the two plates together all the way around the curve.

If desired, you may punch holes into either side, and attach a handle! In this demonstration we put two pieces of masking tape together for a cord.
