A Woman Can Never Have Too Many Purses...

I gave Jen two coordinating purses for our swap. I used paper from DCWV's Mariposa line for both purses. The butterflies for the wooden purse are from Recollections. I was not too keen on the original natural wood color of the purse, so I painted it with espresso acrylic paint. The flowers are from Prima, edged with Stickles (Aqua) to make them more sparkly.

I decorated the handle with an aqua-colored ribbon, a Prima flower and a trio pearl pin from Maya Road.

The second purse is from a 7 Gypsies mini album kit. The lace border with the flowers is from Prima. I got the ruffled lace from Jo-Ann's. The strap is a grosgrain ribbon from Offray. I added a velcro dot to make the purse more functional. Tim Holtz tissue tape and Heidi Swapp paper tape hold the glued edges together, making them more secure.
