I love the game Clue!



I had an old version of CLUE hanging out in the garage. I decided to make a cigar box purse out of it. I took the board and peeled all the rooms and tiles off of it and gathered all the other pieces.



I then started decopaging them to the cigar box.






I gold leafed the edges, distressed it a bit, and added the hardware. I then decopaged the inside of the lid, lined the bottom with felt and added the Top Secret Envelope and a small mirror.



I added the characters to the sides and bottom. I attached the place markers on the bottom for the purses feet. I made the handle out of wood beads and dice and the final touch was the charms I made from the weapons and hung from the handle.








I incorporated at least one of every piece of the game into this purse. I hope you like it!

That is really cool! I love all the little details you put into it like the weapons charms and the confidential file pocket.

That's really nifty!  (Nifty being an understatement)

It's awesome how you used all the pieces of the game for something, even the little pawns and the Case File envelope. 


...And I would totally show it off to everyone I knew, had I created something so awesome.  Smiley

That is awesome.  I have been collecting cigar boxes to make purses or something out of them.  Have been driving my husband crazy with having them all and not doing something with them.  Have been trying to figure out the perfect thing to do with them.  You have inspired me.

I think this looks fantastic, a very professional finish.
Everything you have done with it has been very innovative,
I especially like the pieces used as legs and the little charms.
