Altered Purse

This was a project I made for a "big girl" pajama party I went to. Along with the invitation, we were given a name of someone that was going to be there, and we were to make a gift with our own two hands to give to that person. It was quite fun! It was pretty amazing that everyone got a gift that fit them perfectly.
This is the altered purse I made for Rebecca...she is in the picture on the front. She is a purse myself, so I thought this was an easy choice of projects. I absolutely loved putting it together. I got the pressed board purse from HL as well as the paper. I used Colorbox Cat Eye chalk inks to distress the edges, and applied Modge Podge to adhere the paper. A little ribbon and flower attached to the beaded handle, a few gems around the framed pic, and a monogram to personalize... and ...WhaaLaaa! Take a look...I think it turned out pretty fantastic if I do say so myself! BTW...I received a handmade braided rug made out of my favorite colors...purple, green and blue! It is under my feet at this moment under my computer desk...PERFECT! =0]
