Handbags Galore!

Hi all !

It's Tuesday, and time for a new theme at Tuesday Taggers. We loved looking round your entries for last weeks theme, great work everyone!!

This time our theme is 'Handbags and Gladrags', and as usual is completely open to interpretation, so you can do Cards, ATC's, Layouts, whatever!!

I had some lovely bag templates and wanted to use those, so I made a couple of bag shaped boxes.

The first one was made with some pearlescent ivory card, which I cut and stuck following the template. Then I inked round the edges with a metallic pink ink.

I used some beads stuck to a self adhesive ribbon that I picked up at my local B&Q, and punched some flower shapes out, inked the edges and popped that on as the main focal point. Then I cut some fuzzy tan coloured paper for the handle and stuck it to the ivory one I had already made up and attached it to the main box.

The second one I made with some gorgeous Zebra paper that I printed onto white card. I used a different template for this one, such a lovely shape.

I wanted to keep this one fairly simple following the black and white theme, but added a touch of bling with some gold punched circles and gold brads for the handle, which is made from some fake flock paper. I recycled a huge bow that I have used on a couple of other projects, and made a little bead embellishment to dangle from the handle.

Job done!

Hope you don't mind ladies, but this project also qualifies for the challenge at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Saturday, which is 'No Card', so I am entering it for that too.

Now it's your turn, lets see all your lovely works of art! Head over to Tuesday Taggers and take a look at the lovely DT creations, and have a go!!
