I had a little time this morning, before having to take Emily for a hair appt - she has had a beautiful red/violet highlight/stripe coloured in her hair :-)
I wanted to have a go at this fabulous Exploding Handbag that is on Splitcoast Stampers this week - here is the link to the tutorial.
Now you should all know me by now, in that I do like to see if I can make things smaller and also using 8.5" by 11 paper instead of the 12" by 12".
Anyhow what I have to share with you today are 3 of these bags, but just the bags. I am going to decorate some up later in the week.
I have also done a quick table - for the paper sizes you need to make them all - but please follow Liz Walker's tutorial in the link above, for how to assemble and scoring etc.
This is the small bag open.
This would be a perfect size to fit a couple of treats inside.
And then the Large (as per the original tutorial) - base of the box is 4" by 4", Medium - base of the box is 2 3/4" by 2 3/4", and Small - base of the box is 2" by 2", all together.
I think these have so many uses, party favours, wedding gifts, baby shower - you name it! Just use different papers etc depending on your theme.
I might even make those handles a little smaller - but then that would be up to you :-)
Here is the table I mentioned with Paper sizes and score details. If you watch the tutorial, these should make sense LOL!
I have this for my records now - so will show you some made up bags hopefully later in the week :-)
So, a quick post today.
Shannon has her hair appointment tomorrow, she is having her hair high-lighted/low lighted what ever :-). Only two weeks before she is off to Spain!
Hope you are all having a great week so far.
Thanks for stopping by today.
