Round Robin 'Secrets in her handbag'

Last month I joined the Round Robin of the European Altered Books Group. The theme is: Secrets in your handbag. The rules are simple, we had to prepare a boardbook, decorate it, make a sign-in page and do the first spread. I choosed not to use my own handbags as a source of inspiration. They are often black and only carry the essentials! So my book is about the handbag of a lady with a rich past.

The cover is made from board and in the shape of an old fashioned handbag. When the book is finished and comes back I will add a clasp and some hinges as well.

The sign in page has small envelopes with a tag in each one of them.
