Simple to follow mini handbag

Todays tutorial is an old concept there are various ideas which have been around a very long time. I first made a paper handbag way before I joined Stampin' UP! and did a large version using 12 x 12 papers. This version is scaled down you can make a few of these with very little supplies.

I used whisper white card for the base and white details and marina mist and Pink pirouette DSP from the late paper stacks... sadly leaving us which is a huge shame. I created simple handles and a mini pocket for the front to hold a small card to write a note on . You can decorate these little bags in so many ways but I wanted to keep it simple and with minimal supplies. I did however add little corner parts using my 1 3/4" circle punch and a co-ordinating marker to faux stitch around the edges, just adding that tiny extra detail.Great for a quick gift or party favour, team gift the possibilities are endless. Such fun please do have a try
