So did you just glue the frames onto the purse itself? Very creative! I love it.

Hi Alicia! Nope, I didn't use glue. I drilled little holes in the sides of the frames and used coated necklace wire to "sew" them onto the purses. I used old buttons inside the purse to help reinforce the vinyl. The first one I did, I used heavier wire, but it was bulky and sharp inside the purse, so I covered it with duct tape- not very classy... I'd like to try selling these on Etsy, so I'm trying to tidy them up inside.

Wow, that's so ingenius. I know what you mean about tidying them up. I decopauged those shoe boxes, and as much as I like them, the edges that I turn over on the inside need something. Like some type of edging or something to make it look neater around the inside. But I don't even know what people would want them for if I were to sell them. I just always use shoe boxes for my seeds and wanted to dress them up. Dont know if they would even sell on Etsy! I did one for my mom with old pages from different books since she likes antique looking things. Sometimes they're just good projects for a rainy/snowy day.
