Hello my Lovelies, it's been a week since I posted.
I made a little pathway to my table, (air conditioner,
is coming out tomorrow) I wanted to get my tiny
purses in something. The original cardboard I was
going to use was too small. I thought I could fit it in
this box and it can slide out, I'm building it, so not
sure how it will finish..
I will show what I have got so far..
The photo above is the box and wallpaper I'm covering it

It's thin cardboard so I had to let each side dry
after I glued it on,
with weight on it so it wouldn't buckle. The
wall paper is textured with a smooth finish.
Washable kind it's old..
I have gessoed it to be able to age it up or
something, not sure yet..

This was the original piece with the handle.
First I added some thin padding then cover it
with grey lining, the inside lid is a piece I cut
from a cotton runner..

I foiled taped the top and the handle, I used
the sticky ribbon my DS brought, and if you
look close you can see the iridescent ribbon on
there too..

More of the wallpaper to finish off the back..

From the same table runner I cut off the trim
glued it down...
Now to figure out how to hang the tiny purses
on the panel, how to brace it in the box and
a strap to hang the box, I think, still working on
the plan..
My other Sister is purging, and she has given me 4
boxes of goodies, I have that all put away, then on
Tues I can put the rest of my room back together....
I will post it when the purse is done,soon I hope...
Thanks for visiting my cluttered, full nest..
Hope you have a wonderful creative week....

That wall paper was the perfect cover for this project. The textures is just wonderful. I have to say I really liked the original handle.
