I guess you can say I hop on to it when I get the urge to make a new project. A few days ago I saw a purse box on Chris' blog and fell in love with it. Of course, hers is far more elegant than mine but a girl's got to start somewhere! Then I saw that on Chris' blog she said that she got the idea from Randi; so I hopped along to Randi's blog. OMGoodness, girls! We're talking serious talent!
Randi has a fab tutorial on making this and other amazing creations so you really ought to check it out.
She's got all the directions and if you live in Europe you should have no trouble. I'm an "inches" girl so it was not without it's frustrations. Mainly the problem was this:
My only metric ruler is about 70 years old and barely legible. Also, it's a multipurpose ruler so its not even centimeters down the whole length but changes to decimeters etc....... aaargh!!
But I'm a determined person. lol
I had much trimming and adjusting to do and its faaaarr from perfect if you look closely but I'm not exactly going to SHOW you the bad angles am I?
I've decorated it pretty simply. It was more of an experiment than anything else. I may make another one sometime later with a bit more wow factor.
Ideally you should have magnetic closures for the sides. I did not, so I scortaped one side and just put a smidgen of tape on the other to hold it in place while I took a picture.
Anyway, that was fun! So thanks ladies for your inspiration!!
