Embellished Paper Plate Crown and Matching Purse

A little glitter, a halved paper plate and doily and some pink paint = Royal Magic!

I upgraded this classic children's craft with some glitter, iridescent ribbon, a doily, and petal pink paint.
To make the paper plate purse, you'll need:
~1 paper plate (stronger sturdier models work better, but mine is a Wal-mart special for 98cents & it worked great!)
~ Scissors
~ Hole Punch (use a punch smaller than your ribbon size).
~Embellishments (paint, glitter, stickers, etc.)

Here's How:
1. Cut the paper plate in half with the scissors.
2. Embellish the bottom/back of the paper plate halves with paint, gliter, stickers, etc. Let dry.
3. Join the two halves, embelisshed sides out.
4. holding the two halves together, punch holes around the rounded rim.
5. Thread the ribbom through the holes, making sure to tie off the ribbon at one end. Leave one hole at each end empty to tie on purse handles.

6. Tie ribbon to top holes on one side and string to other side. Viola! Purse straps!
7. Fill purse with pint sized goodies like polly pockets!
Hints and Tips:
~You can use yarn instead of ribbon.
~ For smaller children, skip the ribbon threading and just staple the bottom of the paper plate halves all the way around the rounded edge.

    Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
    Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
    Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
    Generic [url=http://viagra.deutafilm.ru]buy generic viagra online in canada[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

    Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
    The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
