A few years ago, my MIL gave me some stuff from her MIL. Among the items were an old purse, two hankies, and this compact. I am working on a Grandma's Purse Memory Capsule. This is the first project. The compact. I had planned to simply glue a photo of Grandma inside the purse. However, I am glad I didn't get around to it before I discovered the joys of micro glass beads. Here it is!
This is my the same woman and her husband. This was the hardest one to do simply because I had to slide the tape into the frame and of course, it would stick.
This is is the same woman when she was a child, isn't it gorgeous!
