Fabulous Purse Bag

I loved making this paper bag purse at one our demonstrator meetings. It's easy and fun to make. I started with a paper bag cut down to 4" tall and two sheets of rich razzleberry cut to 5-1/2 x 4-1/2 and 5-1/2 x 6-1/4 scored at 4-1/4. I layered them with the Cottage Wall DSP. Then I used the slot punch to punch holes for the handles. I inserted the ribbon and added adhesive underneath the pieces to hold the ribbon to the cardstock.

I attached the paper bag to the front piece of cardstock and then folded the bottom of the paper bag down on the other side (so that I didn't attach the bottom of the bag to my back piece of cardstock). I used sticky strip on the bag and lined up the cardstock pieces front to back. I used a velcro dot to secure the flap. I added some flowers with the Flower Daisies #2 Sizzix die and the "Fabulous Friend" stamp from the Oval Stamp set.
