This is a really fun craft project for tweens and Moms. I bought these purses at a dollar store. They are very sturdy,with handles and lined in summer fabrics. They had some very "tacky" and cheap trim on them which I removed. I attached some appliques and used some thin ribbon to weave shells and wood beads around the top. I love the flip-flops!
This one is a simple summer theme. Remember to really supervise tweens with the glue guns! They can also be used as decor. I put the beachy purse in my Tropical Florida bathroom and filled it with fancy disposable hand towels for guests!
I also made a video of this project http://youtube.com/watch?v=3Pk4R5Y4zKc
and posted it on you tube
with my other crafty videos. (Crafster OK'd me to put my video links in my topics.)
