A Cute Little Gift Purse

My daughter is always in need of a gift for various girlfriends but I wanted something special for Emily. She and Mariel have been friends since they were born! I was present for her birth and her mother is my very best friend :) I found this "paper" purse in the clearance section at Jo Ann's for 50 cents! 

First I painted it with some acrylic paint and then traced it onto this cute patterned paper from Imaginisce (another bit of blog candy winnings) and then layered on the matching embellishments.

It opens with a little metal clasp and there is plenty of room for a present!

This is my current favorite photo of them :)
I probably should have photographed it from the sides and top, but I was in a hurry as usual.

Well, I'm off to take my Dad for his latest surgery. Wish us luck! It's going to be in the 90's today so at least I'll be in air conditioning :)
