Graphic 45 Enchanted Fairy Altered 3D Purse~

I always loved the Graphic 45 Springtime Paper Line, but up until now had not had a chance to use it, and so I decided to take the more Autumn tones from the line and create an Enchanted Fairy Altered 3D Purse with pockets for tucking treasures into!!
This project was so much fun to create, and I hope you enjoy my step by step walk through of it!!
You can find all the items that I used in the and Reneabouquets Etsy, and I have a product list with links at the bottom of the post.

I started with a Beautiful Board 3D Purse With Small Shelf Laser Cut Chipboard Kit, assembled it and then got to decorating!!
Before I assembled the kit, I used it to make a template on all of the Graphic 45 Springtime Deluxe Papers that I was planning on using, allowing me to easily use the pieces for templates and get a really, nice finished look.

I first edged the paper out with Rose Gold Microbeads &
Sand Chunky Glitter Glass.  I then added some #003 Crochet Lace across the bottom and topped it with one of the sticker pieces from the G45 collection. I then took a Beautiful Board Small Cherry Blossom Branch, and layered in lots of different colors with distress markers to get a realistic look, and topped it with a little owl from the Memory Keeper Trinkets  . I love the exclusive coating on the chipboard, it really grabs the colors and allows you to create small works of art!!
I fussy cut the little fairy and frog images from the papers, and then glitter painted accents on them and added some Soft Peach Mini Roses, and various tiny flowers from my stash.

Beautiful Board Tiny Victorian Scroll Pattern  pieces to the sides and handles of the Purse to give it a unique, ornate look. I just colored those with distress markers and added little pearls to the Large Accent piece.

I then took a Beautiful Board Small 4D Shell Compact that has a hinge that I designed so that the piece can actually open and close, and separate decorative layers that allow for easy layering of colors and decorations, and turned it into a little diorama to add to the shelf of the Purse. 

I embossed the outside of the compact in a darker color, then embossed the decorative pieces with a lighter color, accenting the opening with the pearl with the darker color. I filled the insets of the shell with Rose Gold Microbeads and then fussy cut out a little fairy from the papers, added her and some tiny flowers and then cut out the "Fairy Tale" piece from the G45 Collection sticker and popped that on. 

The back of the purse is finished out as well for a designer look with papers from the collection, stickers from the G45 collection along the bottom and the B Board frame and accents from the Beautiful Board Tiny Victorian Scroll Pattern  that I colored with distress markers, accented with pearls and more of the mini roses and tiny flowers.

In the pocket section of the purse, I decorated the Beautiful Board 4 Piece Shell Tag Set to create places to journal or pop on small photos, You can also tuck in small momentos into the pockets of the purse.

Tucked into the Purse Pockets is also a Beautiful Board Star Fairy Pocket Wand. I painted the whole wand with Prima White Crackle Texture Paste and then went over it with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Distress Ink to bring out the crackle finish. I colored my fairy with distress markers and then added glitter paint to her wings. I added a hand dyed seam binding bow ( I just took some seam binding and sprayed it with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose & Tea Dye Distress Spray Stains, and added a little glass orb from the RB Fairy Trinkets  Set, and another soft peach mini rose.

I  covered the large tag with papers from the G45 Collection, then did some color and heat embossing work on the shell overlay that goes with the large tag and added it on. 

Back side of the large tag.

I topped the 2 Medium tags from the set with papers added some of the #003 Crochet Lace to the bottoms and topped them with Oh So Butterlicious Glitter Glass Butterflies.

I just love how this piece turned out!! So magical and so perfect for gifting!! I love that it can be a wonderful decorative piece and a secret spot for tucking in treasures!! I hope you have enjoyed your stop by my blog!! Have a great weekend!! Hugs ~Renea
