JustRite Purse- Day 2 - Kathy Jones

Today - Kathy has a great gift idea to share.
Today’s project is a handbag shaped gift or storage box. The handbag is a wooden kit from Kaisercraft and comes as bare chipboard. I took each piece and painted it with Antique White paint a couple of times for good coverage and waited for it to dry. I then cut out the paper for the front from Kaisercraft’s Vagabond paper range to cover the front. Across the bottom I added a strip of cream card that had been punched on one side with the Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch and adhered some sage ribbon over the top. Using the Bow Easy I made a matching petite bow to add to the side. On the handle I tied some cream satin ribbon and added a green prima flower with a Blush Pearl. Underneath the flower are some chocolate flourishes cut using Doodle Parts Spellbinders set.
The Monogram centre has been stamped using the 1 3/16 Damask Border and Font Set, coloured with markers (chocolate chip, sage shadow) and cut using the Large Circle Spellbinders set. The monogram has been popped up on a Label 4 die cut that has been embellished more Blush Pearls.

Stamps – 1 3/16 Small Damask Border and Font Set
Paper – Cream Bazzill, Chocolate Chip, Kaisercraft Vagabond DP
Ink – Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow
Accessories – Doodle Parts Spellbinders, Large Circle Spellbinders, Label 4 Spellbinders, Prima Flower, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch, Sage Satin Ribbon, Cream Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project and pop back tomorrow for a simple project for the coffee lovers out there!!

Hugs
Kathy J
