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!
