Base coat the outside of the box with Toffee color. Allow to dry.
Apply the first overlay of spots with the black paint. Apply the second overlay of spots with the brown oxide paint.
Attach the latch and hinge hardware, and the handle clamps with the handle.
You're all finished. Fill your purse with your favorite things, and enjoy!
As an optional step, we finished our purse with an interior satin varnish for more durability. We also embellished with some gold corner pieces. You may wish to embellish your purse with metal trims, ribbon, beads, sequins etc.
