Craftster means to me trying out new things.

Here is a book purse made of a Twilight Breaking Dawn book.  I've never made a book purse before, but it was a fun adventure!  Just looked up a youtube tutorial and off I went.


The front cover was rather bare without the book sleeve, so I found a lovely picture of the book covers and glued it on front.  And added some jewels to make it shine. Made a magnetic closure that works almost too well. 


Fully lined inside with a beautiful black and red patterned fabric.


And I looked and looked for purse handles, but could only find big weird ones in the craft stores all over around me.  So figured I'd try to make my own with wire and beads.  I think they turned out great.  Hopefully they will hold well.


Happy Anniversary Craftster!
