How to Make a Purse Picture Frame

DSC_2244Friend’s are one of life’s greatest accessories aren’t they?  I am blessed to have met a lot of wonderful friends who live all across the United States.  Unfortunately, I do not get to see many of them often enough. This is the perfect girly friend frame. What woman doesn’t love a great…


purse? How about combining the two?

Transform a basic wood frame into a purse picture frame.


Wood frame (I got mine from Hobby Lobby)

Mod Podge (I used Glitter Mod Podge)

Piece of scrapbook paper

Paint for the edges and back

Exacto knife and scissors

Foam brush



Purse handle

Strips of fabric


Vinyl lettering


1.  Paint the sides and back of your frame.  I chose white and I used some Krylon spray paint because I had it on hand and it is quick. IMG_1544 2.  Flip the frame over on top of the backside of your scrapbook paper and then trace it and cut it out.  Mod Podge it onto the front of your wooden frame.  Use your Exacto knife to trim if there is excess.IMG_1545 I love this Glitter Mod Podge.  It is perfect for this type of project. Spread two layers of Mod Podge over the top of your paper to seal it (letting it dry in between coats).IMG_1546 3.  Thread your ribbon through the purse handle and starting on the back of the frame glue the ribbon in place with Fabric-Tac or some other kind of glue.  Continue gluing it until you overlap the ends onto the back of the frame.IMG_15574.  I then used wire snips to cut the prongs off of a blingy scrapbooking diamond brad.  Then I used my Fabri-Tac to adhere them to the front of the ribbon to look like real purse brads.IMG_1552IMG_1555 5.  Next I made some fabric rolled flower embellishments.  My friend Jen has a great tutorial for them here.  I glued them in place with Fabri-Tac.IMG_1556


6.  Then I used my Silhouette machine to cut out some vinyl lettering that said “Friends are life’s greatest accessory.”  This would be a fun girl’s night out project don’t you think?IMG_1558DSC_2242 DSC_2248 DSC_2244
