They had these cute little boxes and I wasn't going to get any, but decided to pick up 2 of the 3 styles they had. I think I'll go back and get some more because I can see these used for little gifts.
I took the knobs off of them and painted them with Pearlescent paints for a little glimmer.
I covered them with DCWV papers from the Safari stack (butterfly print) and Saffron stack (loved the colors). I then punched small holes in the tops with my cropodile and added eyelets so I run ribbon thru them.
The little tube purse has a small piece of letter to go around the knob for closure, but I'm going to run out and get some colored elastic since that piece of leather doesn't hold too great.
The other purse had some elastic on it, but it didn't match after I covered it with that gorgeous butterfly paper, so it will get some new elastic as well. I tried several things as a closure, but they weren't working for me.
On the larger purse, I used the Disney Hannah Montana Cricut Cartridge and cut out the butterfly. I layered it and glued it down, adding a little rhinestone in the middle of it. It will hold a cell phone and a few other necessities. I'm thinking my friends daughters might like this for when they are hanging out with friends and just a few items vs a large handbag.
Forgot to take pictures of the round tube before it was altered, and remembered when I had disassembled the larger one. So, it went from this......

I think I might go back and embellish them a little bit more.
