May Artful bag challenge!!


For our May challenge we are making paper purses again. I couldn't help it I just kept looking at the kleenex box in my bedroom thinking I know I can make a little purse out of that. The pattern is a real pretty green with white designs. I took the sides and cut them off and glued them together. Then I took some old lace I had and trimmed the bottom and up at the top by the handle. I made the handle out of some silver wire that I strung an old white necklace on I bought back last summer that was broken. I glued a shiny white button for the clasp. I love how this little purse turned out. It measures 3 inches tall x 4 inches wide. I decided to get some pictures of it outside with the only flowers I have in bloom!!

This little purse reminds me of Spring and I will be putting it in my bedroom! Look around, you never know what you will find!! XO Fran.

What's in the purse? Four pennies for your thoughts? My mom would always tell me this...If you ever give a purse away, make sure to put money in it!
I miss you....lots!

Hi Fran! The Artful Bag Challenge? Well, I'll have to check that out, because anyone who knows me, KNOWS I love handbags and totes of ALL shapes and sizes! I saw your ATC with Audrey Hepburn on it, and loved it!.. Then read back a bit about how proud you are of your daughter, and we sure have something in common there! I'm very proud of mine too! Anyways, I came here, somehow, from the Blissful ATC Swap postings, and just wanted to say hi, nice to meet you, and I look forward to visiting again! ~tina
