Gift Bag/Purse

Hello my friends!  As I posted yesterday, I had finished a project before we left Thursday before my daughter's pageant.  I was so busy packing and running around, I wasn't able to post it before we left.  So here it is.  I found  a youtube tutorial and had to try it.  You could put all kinds of goodies inside, even a cupcake or a card and a small gift.   I altered the measurements because the dimensions given in the tutorial didn't work for the size of bag I have.  The sentiment came from the Cardz TV Stamp set "Garden Greetings."
The white panel on the front of the bag was cut at 4 7/8 x 6 1/4.  You need to make two, one for the front and one for the back.  The front flap white cardstock was cut at 2 x 4 7/8.  The patterned paper was cut at     1 3/4 x 4 5/8.   The paper came from a Recollections stack from Michaels.   For the strawberries on the front, I used the Hello Kitty cartridge.  The two on top were cut out at 1 1/4, the two on either side of the large one were cut at 1 1/2, and the large one in the middle was cut at 1 3/4.   I used my favorite EK Success corner punch.  I used small Velcro dots for closure.  I punched holes and put ribbon for the handle.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I would really love to hear from you!

Lots of Hugs,

  2. How cute is your little bag purse?!! I love it, love the colors you chose and love the strawberries! Your papers are fabulous. Thanks for the link, I will have to put this on my lists of "must" try.

  3. I love this! I had to go check out the tutorial. How easy peasy! I'm thinking that this could even be done using the little paperbags and making it be a Valentine bag for your female coworkers, if you do that sort of thing! Thanks for sharing this!
