Earlier into the weekend, I was rummaging through and trying to organize some sewing materials. I figured since my brother will be here in July, I didn't have to have sewing and craft stuff in both my office craft room and my "official" craft room which is in the basement. I call it "official" because as I'm retired, my office is slowly acquiring more craft stuff and I do most of my crafting in here. However, as my sewing room was the easiest to get started on, I started there and ran across some metal coin purse closures I'd bought 3 years ago when I made coin purses for my co-workers as their last Christmas presents from me before retiring.
My first thought was to just make up several coin purses and have them as spare gifts but because I really like to embroider them with the person's name (they love that), I decided I'd just put them up until I could do that. BUT..., when I came across a scrap of velvet paper which was where it shouldn't have been in the first place, my mind went back to that metal closure. Without a whole lot of thought, my mind saw a little paper velvet pouch to carry chapstick, lipstick, nail polish, even a few coins in. So, with that scrap of velvet paper, the metal coin purse closure, a metal crown embellishment, and a little bit of glue, I came up with this little treausre fit for any queen to pull out of her purse:
And here it is open holding one of the lipstick tubes:
Isn't this just too cute cute? And soooo easy!
Well, I guess I better get back to sorting through and organizing my sewing/craft room. That is, until I run across something else that'll set this rambling ole mind of mine into another adventure land! LOL!!!
I'll be seeing you!
