SPARKLING SPLENDOR PURSE TUTORIAL
WHAT YOU NEED
I used glitter foam sheets (self adhesive back) from the dollar store. It comes in a variety of colors and is super easy to work with. If you can’t find this you could use fancy paper.
String, cord, elastic, wool, narrow ribbon – something that will work as a purse strap
Bead or jewel for latch
Peel of back to expose self adhesive
Take one end of a string (purse strap) and stick it in the middle to one side. Use a longer string for shoulder strap and shorter for hand bag.
Loop the string under and attach the other end to the sticky surface
Flip the strip over bending it in the middle and squeezing the ends of the strip in- between.
Cut out a triangle from another color for the flap.
Remove paper from back of triangle flap and adhere to purse.
Attach a stick on gem or bead for latch.
