20170803_202618

 We are using a 12 x 12 piece of Be Merry DSP.

Here is a snap shot of  all the score lines.

20170803_164643

Fold over and press to secure.

For the  purse handles , I used the Lots of Labels thinlits. The largest and then the 3rd one down.  Use 1 of the centers you just cut out for your flap of the purse.

20170803_184348

 Attach the Handles on the inside of the purse using Tombow and making sure they are both even.

Next glue the flap to the back side of the purse. I  also used small magnets to make a closure for the purse and added a silver mini bow to it for some added glamour.

I used the Carols of Christmas Bundle to make the tag.

The sentiment is from Nature Sings and I punched it out with the Classic Label punch.

I used the 3/8" Silver edged ribbon to attach the tag to my purse.

Bridal Shower Gifts

20170613_132643

  I had an order to try and make these glasses for a friend(Dee) to give as a gift to her Niece for her Bridal Shower.

It was a definite learning Experience of what NOT TO DO for sure...LOL

I used  Folk Art Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint. The BRIDES Glass only took 2 coats of White paint, The Coral glasses was up to 6 coats and I was already over it...Sigh.... I could still see some of the strokes through the light but I felt like I was not going to get rid of them so I stopped at the 6 coats!!!

I used Rhinestones (144220)  on the Brides glass and Dazzling Details in Silver on the Bridesmaids Glasses.

I took 8 drops of Calypso Coral ink refill  (122934) in a spritzer (126185)  filled with alcohol to make my own dye and spritzed my netting to match my paint. They turned out really cute. Some day I will try making a tuxedo glass!

Thanks for spending time with me today!
