Altered Purse in Red, Pink. Blue and Brown

This purse looks a little more simple than the previous one, and it actually was faster to do. It might be because I already had my measurements and knew how to cover it.

I do know the paper I used for this one! It is My Mind's Eye Love Nest glitter stack. My friend Linda, aka LGuild, and I were in Hobby Lobby during one of our excellent adventures and I saw this paper and just fell in love with it! Since the paper stacks were half of of course I had to snatch it up!!

I really do love glitter stacks and the look they give to things. You can click on the picture if you want to see the paper a little better.



The ribbon is some I had in my ribbon stash and I thought it went well with the colors. It does look better in person than the photos. I used some Terrifically Tacky Tape to adhere the bow to the purse. For the strips of ribbon I just ran my ATG gun down the length and then placed it on the purse.

The pearls are some I got at GASC last year from the Want2Scrap booth. There is a link to their website in my list of favorites and their prices are great!!



I use my pearls sparingly and was looking forward to getting more this year at GASC but since we won't be going I will have to see if my friend Angela from My Paper Passion will be willing to pick some up for me! She is suppose to be coming to visit me this summer and help me learn how to use the E2.

Come to think of it she did offer to take pictures and buy for me so there might be other things I want her to get for me!! Thank goodness for cell phones with camera's! It's so nice to have personal shoppers available! LOL

  1. I just need to see all of these side by side so I can decide which one I like the best!

    Guess I'll just have to order some more pearls since we're going to miss out on GASC! Bummer!

  4. Man I couldn't choose if I had too. I like both purses for different reasons! Great job Okie!

    Would you please share how you adhere the paper to the chipboard? I have tried various ways and am still looking for the correct one. Mine never look as good as yours. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Beautiful, how do you make everything look so easy? You are a natural! Is the purse big enough to hold a mini chipboard album?

  7. Kat the handle came with the purse. It has screws to keep it in place when you have gotten the purse all altered like you want.

  8. Cathy I have used my ATG gun or Scotch Quick Dry Glue. I find the glue actually does hold a little better on the edges. I go over the paper with a bone folder to get it pressed down well.

  9. Treva the inside dimensions are approximately 4.75" wide by 5.75" tall by 2.5" thick. So I guess it depends on how mini you are talking about LOL.
