Yesterday I made this purse for my aunt's birthday. The tropical paper is from Stampin Up called Island Oasis. You can go to my Stampin Up website from my blog on the right and find this paper but it is soooo cute. The pattern for the purse is sold by another demonstrator and I purchased it from her but I wanted to add some detail so I made the sunglasses from the FOREVER YOUNG cricut cartridge along with the "DESIGNER TAG" I added to the purse handle. I cut the buckles for the handles of the purse out of GEORGE as well using the square silloutte. There is a set of 4 matching all-occasion cards inside the purse and my bonus...
How about that adorable compact? The original idea also came from another Stampin Up Demonstrator but she used round shapes to make hers. I could not find round post-it notes at all but I did find the hexagon post-it notes so I created my compact pieces with the GEORGE CARTRIDGE. I ran one layer through the big shot with swiss dots to give it some dimension. The adorable bling lipstick is actually a pen! So the compact is really a note pad and pen for the purse! Great gift idea!
When I checked in with FCCB today to see the challenge, it was a tropical theme so my purse and compact are going into the contest for today's challenge! How perfect is that?!!
UPDATE: I won a prize for this entry...my first win ever! So very happy!!
