For You Upcycled purse

I am up on the Jillibean Soup blog today with a fun project.  I really love how this one turned out and can't wait to use it!  I used the new Chilled Cucumber Soup Collection along with a little Jillibean Wooden Flag, to alter a thrift store purse.  The purse had hard sides so it was easy to adhere the paper to it using my Glue Lines.  I cut out the flowers with my Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge and used my Glue Dots to assemble them.  Whenever I purchase an item that has the little chain, I keep them just for projects like this as I love the little added detail that it gives.  Don't you think it is a cute way to give a flower?

And here is the purse before.

Now be sure to visit the Jillibean Soup Blog to see what the other Designers have created for you.

OMGosh, how I love this, Laurel! We did a Pinterest Workshop at the garden center recently that turned an old purse into a flower pot, but yours is soooooo much cuter. We just stuck flowers into the bag, but you!!! You totally transformed the bag into something beautiful first! Genius!

You are so darn creative. What a great idea!

Adorable! What a wonderful idea! It would be a great way to give new life to a purse with a thin fabric lining that has ripped or worn out from too much usage. The outer part still looks good. So why not give the interior a different purpose?

And kudos to you, Lauren, for re-making the outside to go with your design!! That works for me too!
