Birthday Party Purses

OMGosh this was soo hard not to really go to town on this project!!!!  I made this favor purse for Maddie's Birthday Party this Saturday as a prototype.  Since 8 & 9 year old's that have never crafted are making these I had to keep it simple...yikes.  Somebody better hide the Stickles!  Since I love my Cuttlebug I had to emboss the flowers, sorry Jamie I had to do it.  Plus the kids will love using it.  I feel like an addict that needs her fix...I know that I can't use or do anything the girls may not be able to do...Oh my, oh my, it is sitting at my craft desk in desperate need of more attention, distressing, some bling..etc...lol  I promised my daughter Jamie I would keep it simple. Boy that's harder than I thought it would be.  I will definitely add to it as soon as the party is over.

The girls will all be making and decorating their purses at the party.  They can take home their party loot in them.  Even though it is pretty plain, it turned out cute.  I had to use my 12 X 24 Cricut cutting mat to make them big enough.  Too bad they don't make pattern paper that size.   The girl's will be able to use many of the punches,  and my long lost felt stickers to decorate.   I will dig out any old neglected stash too.   I entered this Plain Jane into the following challenges:
Here's what I used to create this purse:
  • Cricut, Gypsy & Forever Young Cart to cut out Purse Pattern
  • Cuttlebug and Embossing Folder
  • Handmade with Love Stamp
  • Martha Stewart Double Punch
  • Marvy Flower & Scallop Punch
  • Butterfly Wire Ribbon
  • Velcro
  • Long Lost Flower Felt sticker
Thank's for Looking, comments appreciated.
