A Gift Handbag


Hello crafters!
                    Well............This time I was not make a card but I created a Gift Handbag first time.  I took the inspiration from Craftscope.com. All the instructions has given on how to make a gift bag with a free template. Hers is the template under the heading: Card handbag-free craft instructions
Card Handbag free craft instructions make gift bag
           
card handbag free craft gift bag instructions make template

                                                            Template 1

card handbag template gift bag free instructions make

 Template 2
Here is a cute little gift bag I made using the light cardboard.  I used this template but I have slightly changed the template according to my need. I cut out the bag body and handle templates on a pink CS and placed the templates on a light cardboard sheet and then I covered the outer side of the body using DP from my stash. Then, I folded the bag sides up and secured them in place. I squeezed  all 4 sides of the bag gently, creasing them & pasted and decorated the gift handbag.

I stamped the image Fancy Sunbonnet Miss Muffet from Little miss muffet stamps on a white CS. She is looking beautiful sitting on a tree trunk with some spring flowers and a cute little bug watching her . I coloured her with promarkers and highlighted with Sakura glitter gel pens and embellished her using a cute heart shaped rhinestone, sky blue diamond shaped rhinestone on the bow . Here is a closer look:

I embossed the aluminium foil sheet(6 pieces together) using Damask Embossing Folder from Itsy Bitsy(new) and brayered the ultimate metallic teal ink from Encore on the top and daubed the scalloped edges with opera pink ink from versacolour. The scalloped oval thin die cut I used is from A1 craft supply store.

The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping(Big Wishes II) which I selected and received as a winner. Isn't it great!!! I used clear embossing stamp pad from Versamark and heat embossed with opaque pastel pink powder and highlighted with Blue Sakura Glitter gel pen.

 After that, I covered the handle using a silver ribbon and also covered at the top and bottom edges around from all the 4 sides of the bag and from inside top edge too. There is a special silver net metallic sheet as I placed underneath. I placed an eyelet over the oval tags and attached a dotted baby pink organza ribbon and made a bow.I stitched some handmade flowers and a pink button on the bow tied in a handle.

I used Ek Success scalloped border punch and Mariposa  Pink Metallic CS 12x12 Pad from DCWV and attached the border . I topped it off with a beautiful white hanging lace on the border from my stash.
 At the bottom I used Spellbinder Shapeabilities Asian accents Die cut using Mariposa stack and Baby pink Polka dot sheet from Summer Bloom Collection (new) and attached the border.


I punched some flowers using jef 8 petal punch and placed handmade flowers and decorate it with  pink pearls. I used shiny metallic pink sheet for the flowers.
This is the backside view.



This small handbag is great for giving small presents. Isn't it......What do you think....!!! So many things gone to make it but at last I am happy that I achieved the goal:)


 I am entering my handbag into following challenges:
