Rainy day fun with ribbon and beads making tiny totes and miniature purses.
I started with the Klutz book Ribbon Purses (no longer in print) and made this tiny purse following their directions and using the kit materials.
I really wanted to stick with just the kit items but then I thought of this one, using some of the kit supplies and adding my own seed beads and charms.
I didn’t follow the directions on this one but did use the kit supplies plus seed beads.
I used the purple beads from the kit to form the purse bottom.
Then I got a shiny new idea.
For the last one, I used the Klutz kit ribbon but added my own embellishment. I would love to make a full size clutch purse like this. The hardest component would be finding large, clear, flat-sided acrylic gems to form the sides of the clutch. I love how the light passes through this purse. I used a tiny turtle from a pierced earring for the decoration on the side.
Oh dear – those are just too cute! ♥
Oh my GOODNESS these are absolutely adorable!!!!! I may just have to make one of these!
Love the tiny purses…. Since the light brings out their hidden beauty….. I think you should display them on an old fashion Easter Egg tree. (The plastic ones that have branches for holding the eggs strung with threads….. or a tiny Christmas tree to sit on a window ledge) I don’t know if there are jewelry trees for ear rings or necklaces but they might work. When you come up with an idea…. please add another picture of your display. Lovely!
