An altered purse...And Basically Bare!

I've been neglecting my blog, my apologies! The end of summer and beginning of school is always a busy time, but I'm back with a fun project using a brand new Basically Bare release!

We have a neighbor girl who always comes over to play with my kiddos each weekend. Her birthday is tomorrow and I wanted to do something "girlicious" for her. She loved a bag I had previously glammed up for my daughter, so I thought this would be the perfect time to make her a fabulously sassy purse. I started with this, a skirt shaped purse, complete with front and back pockets. Too cute!

I turned to the brand new Bare Basics Celestial Shapes set from Basically Bare for my theme. Little girls are rock star divas, and therefore, stars are the perfect decoration!

I painted two of the chipboard stars from the set a fresh "diva" lime. I gave them a quick coating of glitter as well. Then I pulled fun bling and beaded trim from my stash.

To finish off this gift, I filled the purse with scratch-n-sniff stickers and funky press on nails. I am thinking this will be a big hit!
