Now for the purse tutorial everyone has been asking about. The watermelon purses were a major hit at the party and provided guests with both a fun craft and the perfect little container to put their party favors in. The secret to these purses is actually in its materials. They were made out of Chinet’s Classic White Paper Plates! You know those really sturdy ones. I am obsessed with them. Here is how I turned your everyday plate into a purse:
2. Paint the back of the plates red and green with acrylic paint. Paint the inside or base of the plate red and the outside rim green.
5. DOWNLOAD free watermelon seed template, print and cut out the seed (watermelon decals included just for fun).
8. Using a drill with a small bit, drill holes into each side of the purse.
