I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

A Blinged Up Purse

I just love these little boxes that I picked up in the Dollar Bins at Michael's.  They have so much potential.  It's another late night where I'm not sleepy just yet, so I pulled out my paints and went to work.

I used a light purple Pearlescent ink paint and painted the entire box.  Replaced the elastic to some white elastic and added some rhinestones.  I used Fabric Tac glue to glue them in place.  I was amazed at how fast it dried.  And of course, it needed some straps, so I made some small holes with my cropodile and added some small purple eyelets.  The ribbon added just the right touch needed.

I'm sure any young girl would love to have this in her collection.
