Fabulous Handbag



I am LOVING these new Sizzix XL dies. This one is a SU exclusive! It makes the cutest little bag. It is actually supposed to have a circular base, but I saw Tandra make it into a flat bag and I was SO excited that I had to do it too! I MUCH prefer this style to this intended style. The die also comes with the decorative strip which is geniously molded to fit the bag, a couple solid flowers, the open flower used on this bag, a tag and the base of the bag (which I did not use). I am in love with this die. It is SO SO cute! I ran a piece of red riding hood card stock through my Xyron and attached it to a 4 X 4 piece of chipboard. Then, I cut the chipboard into 4 sections and die cut just the outline flowers. I used one on the bag and put the extras IN the bag to gift someone. I used one of the new SU buttons in the center of the outline flower. The tag was stamped with a SU sentiment and punched with the word window punch. I added an eyelet and tied it on with some new red riding hood taffeta ribbon. Each decorative strip was stitched and then adhered to the bag. The bottom of the bag was stitched closed.


I can't wait until I get my 5 new Sizzix Bigz XL dies. I love making these 3D gifties! :)
