(Alice has kinda become a theme for Me)

I actually made these trinket boxes first, from the pages of this book:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=421773.0;topicseen#axzz2PlLyeV9B

 I got the book for $3 and the fabric for $1.50, I liked it because it looked like writing paper and the floral I originally picked out was horrible. The letter beads where bought for around $5 and I made colored beads from polymer clay. The handles read "Alice In Wonderland" and "A Merry Unbirthday"..Because they needed to be about the same number of beads. I think the golden spine is cute.





I used this tutorial for the Purse,
http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Book-Purse
I bent a wire hanger for the handles and I'd like to ad a pocket.

I saw something similar to this at a craft show a few years ago but yours is much cuter than any of those. I love the beaded handle. Thanks for sharing.

The golden spine is perfect! Wink

The entire purse...seriously a work of art, in my eyes, since Alice is my favorite literary work. Fantastic job. I'd be proud to be able to use such a purse.
