I am so happy about this room more pics of the finished room here. The walls are scrap book paper with wood over top. I used grandmas stovers Glue It worked really well, the top trim is embossed trim painted antique white with krylon gold leafing pen rubbed on. The walls come of to access the wiring. That door leads into the little girls room at this landing will be a pool table, on the upper level will bea games table and a pair of chairs a sofa and a couple tables. The trim over top of the book case is held on by wax, for the book shelve comes out and that is where the wiring goes. The who;e room will have parquet floors. The door will Have curtains hanging down. Hmmm, I need to finish that trim around the window. . .

You will need balsa wood strip wood about 2/3rds thick, a knife, some fabric and ribbons of your choice, scissors and of coarse glue.
Start with a piece of strip wood preferably balsa wood. About an inch long and an inch tall, mine was an inch and a half.
Step 2 and 3
Slice off the top making a triangle with a square base.
Add a triangular slit in the side be digging in your knife shallowly at an angle, do this twice. Oh don’t forget the other side.
Now is where you get to add your fabric!
If you followed the directions then you will need a piece about an inch square, and one rectangle the width of your purse (1 inch) by about 3-4 inches you can cut the excess or fold into a triangle for a flap.
Using a toothpick spread glue over top of the wood and wrap your inch square piece around the edge and using a toothpick [a separate one is better no likes glue on there bag] press into the groves
Wrap your inch wide fabric around and either cut off the excess or fold into a flap. If there is any excess on the sides cut it off.
A pocket upfront can be added with a coordinating fabric, by cutting a square and covering it with trim, a handle can be made with lots of things here are some ideas
For an evening bag you just make the purse about half an inch tall, and follow the instructions almost the same. For handles you can use
Small scale drawer handles.
