Funky Birds Handbag

9/30/20 Best Technique Winner at Classic Design Challenge Blog!
9/30/20 Spotlight Winner at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge!

Hi everyone! It’s Saturday and I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I’ve been playing with my purse die set again and this time created a gift bag featuring some very fun washi tape, bling and a large paper flower from Eyelet Outlet – just in time for a summer or beach wedding or an anniversary! How fun would it be to tuck a gift card or cash into this little purse?!

For the front and back of the purse base, I covered the cardstock with Funky Birds Washi Tape and die cut the pieces. I then cut all the rest of the purse pieces from tweed cardstock and the rings from gold foil cardstock, and assembled the handles. I assembled the purse base and added White Pearl Bling Strips across the washi tape seams on the front and back, then attached the handles and the other purse pieces. I attached the three Paper Flower layers with an Amber 6mm Jewel Brad w/Gold Edge and affixed the flower to the front of the purse.

Here’s a shot of the back of the purse. I’m so loving how this turned out! I think it’s time to admit that I’ve become a paper purse addict, lol!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
