To be honest, this is kind of a cop-out of a tutorial, since I don’t have any in-progress pictures and it’s pretty straight forward, but I thought I’d post it anyway!
A box! I got mine from Micheal’s.
Acrylic Paint, it took a little over half of one of those little craft bottles of the pink, just for reference.
Ribbon/Strap of some sort I made mine just by making a tube of fabric
Thumbtacks (I used 4)
Paint. Paint a lot. You can tape off certain bits if you like, but I just used a tiny brush on the edges. Make sure to paint the bottom:
and the inside!:
It helps to create a more finished look. That big blob on the inside right is actually a sticker we got at the pirate exhibition we went to for a meetup a while back.
Secure your strap with a couple of tacks, just tap them in with a hammer. Mine look like so:
But you can arrange them however you feel it will be most secure.
Decorate! here is one of Baby’s chest purses for reference, pearls, bows, rhinestones, anything will pretty much look cute! I chose a pretty plain look for time restrictive reasons, but if I ever decorate it more, you guys will be the first to know!
