My niece, Elissa, had her fifth birthday party this weekend. Not one to show up empty handed, I brought her this briefcase.
Oh don't look so concerned! Of course I beautified it before actually giving it to her. Whatever life this briefcase had in the past (I think Wall Street, no?), it was destined for a pink polka dotted future. I primed, painted and decoupaged it.
I made sure every inch was covered and pretty.
Then I filled it with all kinds of craft goodies.
Including this special notebook.
Not bad for an old briefcase, eh?
