Zippedee Altered Purse

Here is the cute altered 'purse' wooden box which I made using the Zippedee level 2 paper pack,Just the ticket stamp set (one of my very favorites) black ribbon and some of our new embellishments - yes you get a sneak peak at some of the goodies :O)
This photo is about 18 months old and shows Leo, Elliott and Robyn. I added mini opaques and the new red Sparkles for 'Bling'.
This is the back of the box - I have used some of the new Opaques pearls in Liquorice (black) and stamped "made with love" in black Stazon ink,  from the Made with love stamp set D1387 - page 79 of the Summer Idea book.
This end of the box features a page from the new Mix & Mingle mini album. I curved it gently before I Modge Podged it to the box. More Opaques cover the holes in the edge of the pages. I used a wooden oval shape for the tag and covered it with more paper and added mini Opaques around the photo of Leo & I.  I threaded more black ribbon and the satin edged Colonial White ribbon through it to tie it to the handle.
The other side of the tag has Robyn on it with another red Sparkle :O)
This is the other end of the purse with a photo of my husband richard and of Elliott. I have used on of the Clear acrylic tags and added a clear button which I added liquid glass to and then dropped it into Prisma glitter. Then I attached the button to the box - trapping the glitter between the box and the button :O)
Finally the lid - the beaded handle is from Michaels craft store which is where the wood box came from too. More black opaques and red sparkles add the 'bling' to the photo of Rich and I.
Hope you like it :O)


  1. I have this purse out on my side table so that I can see the photos of the children. I love the photos of them - my little one is such a clown. I do also use it when I go out - so I have the best of both worlds :O) Hope you like it x
