Project Instructions

Remove handle from the top. Paint wood purse desired color, inside and out. Paint handle another color. Set aside to dry.

Print out the pattern below. Cut out both pieces. Trace them onto the back of your desired prints and cut out.

Choose three additional coordinating prints. Once paint is dry, close the box and lay it face down on the back of your first print. Trace around the box with your pencil and cut out. Adhere this to the front of your box. Adhere the peace sign to your desired location.

Open the box and create a template for the main purse walls with your tissue paper. Lay it on the back of your second print, and trace two of these shapes. Cut them both out.

Adhere these to the main purse walls of the box. Adhere your mirror to the inside of the main purse wall (shallow side).

Cut paper to cover inner side walls of the purse from the second print. Adhere.

Reattach the handle to the top and add the clear floral accents around the mirror, inside the peace sign, and around the outside edge of the box. Add a bow to the handle and enjoy!

Tips

To give your peace sign more height, trace the larger peace sign onto craft foam and cut it out, mounting paper on top.
