Mother Nature's Beauty!!


JUNE ARTFUL BAG CHALLENGE

For our June challenge we were to recycle something in to a bag/purse.


I had this old Sears hat box that was damaged. I kept looking at it and thinking I could make it into a "nest purse"!! When we were on our vacation we walked alot on the beach. I always pick up things. With this ideal in mind I picked up things I knew would make a cool nest. The only thing I added was some Spanish moss and a little egg that can removed. And I got some black trim from JoAnn's that kinda reminded me of feathers. 


I love how this turned out and I am calling it my "nest purse" as I can carry it and pick up more treasures!!
XO Fran.
