Upcycled Purse

I decided to play with one of my garage sale finds.  I used the 'purse' from below.  I picked it up for a couple of bucks at a garage sale along with the books. They are all wooden and hollow inside, little boxes of sorts.



First I spray painted the inside and outside of the purse black.  I then covered the sides with some Cosmo Cricket Upcycle paper.  I made the flower with my Walk in My Garden Cricut cartridge.  This only took minutes really, as the spray paint had a quick dry time.  I thought it would be cute to hold a gift card and some candies for some of my girls friends on their birthdays.  What do you think?  other suggestions for it?  I love how it turned out.  I also sprayed the flowers with Glimmermist before assembling for a bit of sparkle.
