altered mini purse

i made this little mini purse for claire. she loves it when i make her stuff. i'm sure it will hold many treasures- jolly ranchers, bubble gum, one earring because she lost the other one, phone numbers of friends that have been scribbled on a scrap piece of paper, polly pockets, a rubber band, or maybe it will just get shoved in her closet with all the other "lost" items that will never again be seen. ahh, to be seven years old again.
