Evening all. I've a practical present to show you today...to go with a card i made a little while ago. I love making dinky handbags and they're always received very well. So this is from a template I've had long ago but there are plenty to find nowadays for free on various sites. I used papers from Bearly mine (Donna)...tried to fix everyhting on while it was flat, so less fiddling when i glued together the sides. Tag is a free stamp from a mag, charm from The Works, ribbon from stash so is the button hand sewn to keep it in place.


Back

Inside...lined and with a pocket too (piece of card edged with scissors).

A bag has to have the all too important MONEY!!! in it.

And here they are together. I'll be finding a suitable box to place both items in with lots of tissue paper and big bow for a special person, not worried about postage as it will be given by hand.

Challenges I'd like to enter are mainly 'anything but a card' and include Craft Your Passion 2nd entry, Allsorts 2nd entry, Ribbon Girls 2nd entry, Creative Craft 2nd entry, Craft Us Crazy 2nd entry, Kaboodle Doodle 'bags 7 tags', and Designed 2 Delight designers challenge 'pink & black'. Thankyou for taking the time to visit, until next time, have a fab weekend.
