I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Forever Young Purse Gift bag

Hi all! Here is one of the purses from Forever Young. My DD needed a little gift bag for a Birthday party she is attending. She picked this paper from my stash to make the purse. It is from Cosmo Cricket's Hey Sugar line.

I sized the purse at 5.24". It was the largest I could fit across 12 x 12 sheet. We then picked out two accents from the paper pack. The Letter B, and a small button that says "From me to you"

We used a 1.5" x 12" strip of the paper and made a rosette, and attached the printed button to the front. We then adhered that to the front flap of the purse.

We used a small Velcro dot as the purse closure.

Then my DD strung some coordinating beads on a wire for the handle. I punched some holes on the sides and attached a loop through the hole to secure the wire handle to. The beads and jewelry findings were from the goodies my Mom brought!

We attached the B to the reverse side of the purse. ( I can't believe I forgot to photograph this! LOL)

Hope everyone is having a Great and Crafty Day!
