mini album I made for a b-day gift

 My gd is invited to her little friends b-day and she loves barbies  so I decided to make a purse mini for her I got the concept of using a real purse handle from kathy orta so I cant take credit for that. I made the purse using a box and simply cutting sides out thats it. It is latched with heavy duty magnets and the little things hanging from handle are hair ties.
 here is a side view of what the purse looks like
 now the really fun part decorating the inside anyway you please. the pocket you see on the right is a french frie style box and made a fingernail mini album to put inside it and the doll beside her on left is a book mark.the other mini book is attached to the handle with book rings added little phrases on the bottom of each one
this is just an extra picture showing you the fingernail polish mini album. If you would like more instructions on this I do not mind giving you what I can just email me personally. hugs
