It’s in the bag

For this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments – Anything but a Card challenge I decided to recreate a purse I saw online.  The purse I saw on Purse Boutique is so cute!  So I thought this purse out of paper would be perfect for a small gift or gift card.  I cut the purse out of Basic Black card stock then ran it through my Big Shot with the Weave Texture plate.  I made the handles out  of braided grosgrain and added the spiral flower to the front.  Easy!  Here’s my inspiration and below it my creation.  I’ll post the template information in the next few days.
