I made this little purse book for my SIL for her birthday. It was a lot of fun. I found the purse at the dollar store. It already had the fabric cover and ribbon handle. Inside was a tablet of lined paper which I tore out and I made my own cardstock pages.
I stamped the candle image twice and cut them and put two different colors together. Then I put some super sticky tape sheet over it and beaded it. The alpha letter was stamped & embossed. Then I shaped some wire to fit around it and covered it with crystal effects. When it was dry I cut it out and stuck it on the cover. Then I added more crystal effects and clear glass beads.

Thank you so much for your detailed description of how you did this awesome purse. Your SIL is going to go crazy. A gift from the heart means so much more than any purchased gift ever could. It is obvious you put a lot of time in this and it turned out great.
