I started with a wooden box, some papers, glue, wooden beads, and the trim. I had lost the directions so I just started going with it and half way through I found them and realized there was black paint that I didn't see before. This was a very awesome find because I started to paint the box and also on one side created a little effect. I am not sure how much I like it, but I am certainly in love with making purses now.
I love the Creative Women Kit's I get from Annies Attic every month. I really helps me break away and do something else for a while.
Annies Attic is an online website that I have gotten a few things from. I love the site and the kit club has some really great things in it. I do suggest looking and if you can do it, I really suggest finding a way and joining.
