A unique, upcycled metal purse, so cool and cute made from an almond roca tin.
This purse is so cute. I repurposed several items to make it. The body is an almond roca candy tin, the handle and hinges are an adjustable leather belt, it is lined with a pair of purple corduroy pants. Upcycling is so smart, save the planet and look good all at the same time. The tin measures 9 1/2" tall, 4 3/4" deep and 7 1/4" across. It is such a great size for an everyday bag. I put a light duty pocket on the inside of the lid. I used heavy duty rivetts to put it all together. The tin is shades of pink with silver and gold tones for the trim and lid. One of the photos has a white handle, the one for sale has a brown suede adjustabler handle and is shown in the other photos. Recycling is the way to go. Re-use to= make better. Thanks for looking.
