Turn an old, unwanted book into a useful unique purse!
- A hardcover book (preferably with a pretty cover). The one I used was this boring lavender color, so I went ahead and decoupaged it.
- A piece of thick cardboard cut to fit the spine of the book.
- Half a yard of fabric for lining.
- Purse handles and some type of snap closure.
- An X-ACTO knife.
- Sewing pins.
- Fabric pen/chalk/some other type of fabric-friendly marking utensil.
- Extra-strength glue.
