September Challenge Project #2- Notebook Purse and Matching Pen

For the September monthly challenge on Somewhat Simple, the second project was to make an altered notebook purse.

You can find the tutorial for making the purse at Sister's Stuff,

I added the matching pen! Here is how:

Mod Podge
pen (I got mine free from Fleet Farm)
Scrapbook paper
Paper flower with brad (or any other embellishment)
1.) Cut your paper to be the height of your pen and about 2 inches for the width.

2.) Cover your paper with Mod Podge.

Front and back

3. Set your pen on the edge of the paper and roll as tightly as you can. Pushing and holding the edge until the mod podge is dry (it only take a few seconds... you won't be standing there all day!)
Voila! Almost done!

4.) Put some Mod Podge on the bottom of the pen

and on the bottom of your flower
5.) Put the flower on the pen and hold until it dries.


Wouldn't this be the cutest gift?!?
