BBTB2 Challenge: Purse

Here is my design for this week's BBTB2 Challenge. It is the purse cut from the Paisley cartrdige. I cut out 2 shapes from a blueish-gray cardstock and used them to create a gift bag. I inked all the edges with light blue ink. The inside which makes the "bag" to hold a small gift is just white paper, and actually connects the front of the gift bag to the back of the gift bag. The printed paper on the front and back is an embossed cardstock from K & Co. The felt flower is from Michael's dollar bin, and the other flowers at the top are from the Bride's line of confetti. I Stickled their centers with pink and added some to the felt flower. The button is vintage from my grammy. I tied some ribbon to the handles and bunched up some tissue paper in the bag. I cut it out to fit to page so it's about 10.5 inches large, which is a good sized gift bag. Check out the other designers ideas at BBTB2...those girls ROCK!

Miles of Smiles,
