Handy Bag

Hello.  Welcome.  Korthobby have moved their challenges to fb and have challenged us to make a purse from paper.  I used this tutorial by Lisen to make a cute party handbag for a birthday girl.  

I really liked the design of this.  It's sturdy and there's a nice size space inside.  I was thinking I could use it to hold a set of cards, but I'm going to slip a card and some chocolates in this one LOL.  

I used Bazzill for the base and Sizzix patterned paper for the panels.  The cameo and the metal flourish and hearts are all from  The sentiment was die cut using Cheery Lynn and Stamploration dies.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
