I purchased an old book from the second hand store and removed the pages.
I covered the book in fabric and ribbon and added a decorative ribbon flower to the front.
I lined the purse in an old cereal box cut to fit within the book cover (slightly smaller). I covered the cereal box with a soft pink fabric and made sides with that fabric as well. I purchased the handles but adhered them to the inside of the bag with ribbon and hot glue. The entire purse was put together with hot glue, absolutely no sewing involved for this project.
