Hippie Fringe Purse

Many, many blog posts ago, I put in a picture of a wire purse I decorated. Now, here's another one.

The base is a wire "decorative" purse, not meant for use as a handbag. Pieces of fuzzy and ribbon-like yarns were looped through the wires. The flat, ribbony yarn was also wrapped and glued around the handles. Lastly, the insides were lined with tan felt - I don't know why, since it wasn't meant to be carried around with junk in it! ;)

Irish Today Card

Here's my St. Patrick's Day blog contribution, an Irish-themed card that I made quite a while ago.

There are two layers of paper on the card, a green-with-blue-dots paper (hard to see the dots!), and a striped paper. On top of the are layered two card stock shamrocks, white and green, then the lovely green bottle caps. I colored the background of some black-and-white letter stickers with green marker, and used them to spell out "Irish Today".
