I'm the queen when it comes to revamp stuff.
This one was a very easy task.
Hope I inspire you to revamp something in the near future.

I found this terrible ugly cigar box purse at a car boot sale, my man
insisted on haggle the price down to a cool 1.25. (He loves that stuff.)
He knows how much I love cigar box purses and bamboo handles.
The old motif was terrible ugly but I knew that I could do something
really cool with it.

I removed the old front (but saved the beads for another project), cleaned
the metal end-bits, and then I printed and laminated a picture of Bettie Page,
glued it onto the front, folded the edges before I screwed the end-bits back on.
Then I glued a silk flower onto her hair.
TA-DA!
