I just love this patterned paper by 'Crate Paper' called 'Honeymoon' from the Portrait Collection out last year. This paper is in the reduced section of the shop and is only 40p per sheet! I used 2 sheets for this bag because I made the rosette flower out of the same paper but you could make it with just 1 sheet of this patterned paper and use something else for the sides.
I used the reverse side of the patterned paper for the sides of the handbag.
I added a wooden button, some string, decorative pins and made a little puffball from Bazzill Tulle Ribbon called 'Truffle'.
These are a lovely little project to make as part of a group - the ladies at the National Scrapbooking Day really enjoyed making them. They also make gorgeous little gifts to give to someone else - just fill them with whatever you like from chocolates, craft items etc., the list is endless.
Thanks for stopping by today. If you leave a comment (today only) I will enter your name into the blog candy draw (if you qualify). Best of luck!
