This time I made a paper handbag, a coordinating tag with a little surprise inside for my friend's daughter's birthday which is round the corner.
Keeping her age in mind,(12yrs) I thought it should be bright and cheerful and so I chose green and orange as the color for this bag.
This bag is made from a single sheet of 12X12 Cardstock.Later, I stuck PP's from the Recollections paper pack. Inside the bag, I have embossed the middle panel with cupcakes and candles from Itsy Bitsy and have stamped birthday quotes. There are provisions to stick photos and slots for journaling too!
This bag is unbelievably sturdy...and can hold a cute little basket with some goodies too!
The handle is made with co ordinated beads and I made a small label for the front panel with a flower as embellishment.
On the handle there are some lovely charms dangling...a key, hugs and kisses tag, the alphabet "D" (the girls name starts with that) and a heart shaped resin pendant!
Some pastel green pearls add to girlie charm. Like I have said before, I cannot ignore the back of the bag! So a Tim Holtz flower with a sentiment adorns the back.
A closer look at the tag! I have used damask PP from the recollections stack and then added a layer of orange handmade paper with damask dry embossing. On that is the lovely sunflower from Cheery Lynn with a label sentiment which says it all!
This bag has surprised me in many ways and I am quite eager to give it to the young lady and can't wait to see her response to this!
How do you like it.... please let me know.

The resin pendant has colored shimmer inside and the silver key is using mirror paper, pearls and colored jingles on the heart pendant too!
Thanks for stopping by.
