Stifflersmom, that game cracks me up!  Mostly, the puppets crack me up.  They remind me of those flimsy plastic puppets they used to give out at Burger King.  Same shape and everything.  I think they were even thinner than food prep gloves.  I'm desperately trying to think of a great use for them, but it just isn't working right now...

Good cow, stifflersmom. If you send the lining and the box, you might as well make it yourself! I'll find some lining, unless you are just dying to pick out your own! I still have some of the fabric left from the Scrabble bag, but I'm not sure the colors will match.

I found some fabric on ebay just now that I think will work and some mini-ornaments for a clasp. They even have *gasp* Boris!  Woot!

I can't make this myself, I haven't your eye for detail and I don't know how to use a ruler. Cheesy

Awesome job Rackycoo!  Bigmouth, your pictures totally crack me up.

Stiffy - If you can make the crafts you do, you can do this purse!

This is great!
I was looking for scrabble games at the thrift store, but I was only thinking about the game pieces!

Now, I've got to go through the games I bought and see what they would look like as purses!

Uncle Wiggly,hmmmmmmmmmm, how would HE look?HuhHuhHuh Huh

Thanks and GREAT JOB!

I am always looking for Scrabble at the thrift store for those pieces! That's why I originally bought this box, but I couldn't throw it away because the picture was just too funny! I was so glad that bigmouth had such a fun request for a purse. That box was the perfect size.

I have two other really old games I bought at the same time: "Pit" and "Flinch". They both have great boxes, but they are a little small. I am thinking about making journal covers with their lids.  Smiley
