Personal Organiser Set

I picked up this (not particularly attractive!) set from woolies the other day, and was a bit disappointed when the elastic that kept the whole thing shut was all perished.
What's a girl to do???
Rip the whole thing apart, make it pretty and fix it all up!
 I chose paper from Bo Bunny's Sweet tooth collection, and combined it with Mocha Divine cardstock. 
First of all, I ripped the whole thing apart. 
I kept the concertina folder piece as it was, and then just covered the base in the sweet tooth paper. 
All this yucky stuff on the inside got covered with mocha divine cardstock, and then I reassembled the interior - I used a good quality liquid glue to stick it all down. (Helmar professional). 
I finished the outside with some ribbon and a clasp that I had in my stash, and used a title block from the Sweet Tooth Noteworthy pack, which I matted onto a scrap of mocha divine to make it pop a little more. 
For a little bit of bling, I added a Kaisercraft rhinestone letter - That's a lot of sparkle for $2 !
I love how this turned out!!!

Bloody brilliant!

I got the exact same one, ooh about 2 years ago now and the elastic was perished too. I've been meaning to re-elastic mine but you've inspired me to go further!!
