A sweet little handbag

Something a little different but very girly.  I've made a little treat handbag holder for my Stampers 6 ladies.  I like to put a little something extra into their bags each month as a thank you.  Would you like to receive a bag of goodies each month and spread the cost of your wish list?  Then please get in touch and I'll be delighted to add your name to my list. 

I know there are lots of templates for handbags out there but this is one I designed myself.  I started off by measuring the treat that I was putting inside and made a template from there.  The main panel is Calypso Coral cut with two score lines in the middle (1cm apart) and then cut the sides at an angle.  Decorated  the front with some Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper that I had left over from Sale-A-Bration.  Any patterned paper would do. I used the Top Note Die to cut some Concord Crush and embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I attached one half of the top note to the back of the bag and used a hoop and loop fastener for the front.  A Basic Rhinestone gives a little sparkle.  A strip of Concord Crush makes the handle. 

For the inside I made a belly band to hold the treat in place and decorated it with more of the Everyday Enchantment paper.  Sorry I should have taken a photo of the inside too but I'm sure you can figure that bit out. 

I'm really pleased how they turned out.  Wouldn't they make great end of year Teacher/Leader pressies?  There's plenty space to add a gift card too. 

Hope you liked my little project and I appreciate you taking the time to stop in past. x
