Purse-onality Cuttlebug Challenge 81


Its Wednesday, its Wednesday

.....I can finally show you my project for the week! I had to sit on my own hands to prevent myself from posting this too early :)  You know how it is when a girl has a good purse, she HAS to share it with her friends! I love this little paper purse....and was chomping at the bit to show you!
 
This week our Cuttlebug Challenge be inspired project is "purseonality" I have had the good fortune to get a peek at the rest of the Design Teams projects, and they are jam packed with multiple personalties {not the bad kind} *wink*


Layered Distressed Flower:
Want to make one? It was pretty easy...I know I always say that , but honest it is!
There are two ways to make it.
  1.  Using your cricut, and the forever young cartridge, cut your purse on the "fit to page" setting. Cut flower "9" set at 2 3/4 cut the shadow and the flower 2 times in varied papers. Emboss, sand, and crumble up {really squoosh it} then open all the layers and insert brad. {SU summer sun cord. brad used here} spritz with water and crumble more, allow to dry. Spray with glimmer mist, or shimmer paint for a hint of sparkle.
  2. Use you circle and scallop punches or die cutters and follow above steps, add 4 embossed leaves.It will take longer for the flower to dry than the whole process of making the flower!

Add a tag, and a library plate to serve as a buckle and you have yourself a handbag, that you wont lose your cell phone in. You can however fit a gift card, some yummy chocolates, or a few cosmetics as a gift....Channel lip gloss anyone?
