Be Inspired #75 - Spring Project; use flowers!


It is Cuttlebug Challenge blog Be Inspired Wednesday! Our new weekly challenge: Spring project; use flowers. I used Provo Craft Cuttlebug Flowers dies to create my purse "clasp".


Here is my purse when it is opened all of the way. Do you see the pockets on the left and right side? (I used a circle punch to create notches.) You can see blue scallops in there...


This is what the scallop circles look like when pulled out. I used my Provo Craft Cuttlebug Flowers dies again on the corner of the journal block. This little purse is just waiting for photos. This makes a nice gift.


Here is the back of the purse. I learned to make a project like this one from Sue. I fell in love with the beautiful Parisian Breeze textured designer paper and I knew I wanted to make a purse card with those papers and the corduroy brads and coordinating ribbon.

Head over to Cuttlebug Challenge blog now to get an eyeful of fabulous ideas. I am heading there now to see what my uber-talented DT sisters have created!
