So back in September we went camping as a family, and they had a camp store that had some awesome stuff in it. One of the sections of the camp store had a section with handbags and jewelry in it, and I went to the hubs like honey look our anniversary is coming (hint hint). They had this really cute handbag that was covered in tiger striped material and gems etc (my friend and i have a joke that if I had a past life i must have been a mag pie....no we don't really believe in past lives it's just a joke because i like shiny things)
Anyway the bag was completely gorgeous but it had a sticker price of $50.00 and while the hubs was totally supportive and was like you should totally go back and get it....we knew the truth that 50.00 for a purse wasn't necessarily the best use of that 50.00 for us. We already knew for our anniversary we wanted to have a nice dinner out with some friends.
So I had a thought, over the summer I had gotten some shoes off one of those facebook groups where you sell things locally...and with it came this purse but it looked like this:
This is what I did.
I then used the goop and glued the cross from the chain onto a side of the purse. The goop dried clear so it worked out great. Sorry the pictures are a little glowy because of the golden color of the purse and it reflected the flash from my camera. I recently read there is free photo editing software online so maybe I will try soon to learn how to use it.
Here is the finished project:
Do you have a creative side. In what ways do you express yourself. Look around you house what can you do with something you already have?
