I found more photos!
   

I created this using:

1.  a book                                        2.  coffee filters
3.  a set of pot paints                        4.  a package of magnets
5.  a zippered pencil holder                  6.  a ruberized screen placemat
7.  dog collar                                    8.  dog leash
9.  set of scrub sponges                    10.  did not use a metallic ruler

     

My own supplies, Mod Podge, sewing machine, craft knives, tape

I ripped the pages out of the book and used them to cut the bathtub template, covered that in coffee filters with mod podge and painted black. I covered the book with coffee filter pieces using mod podge then painted it a watered down blue to match the pencil case and collar. I used single pages that I painted using watered down paint from the pots and tape them to the back in the iris pattern (Creations from Diedra template).  Cut the bubbles from the coffee filters and the legs from one of the heavy stock pages of the book.  Glue the legs on and use mod podge to adhere the bubbles and cover the entire design.  Cut holes for the straps, and cut the leash to make the straps, keeping the end for a key holder.  Sewed the placemat to make the inside liner of the purse.  Glue magnets to the back side of the pencil case and inside one side of the inside.  I also cut the outside of the sponges off and sewed in in a patchwork patter to create a cell phone case in the second picture, but I'm not crazy about that.  Last thing I did was glue the bathtub section to the book sandwiching the dog collar closure.

   

I love my finished product and I hope you do too!
