I had so much fun making this purse using a Red Hat Society theme for one of my friends. The purse is cut from Forever Young at 5 inches. Recently my friend Sharon sent me a Red Hat purse that she made and filled it with yummy cookies. I just love it and thought my Red Hat friends would like a purse too, maybe filled with a few trinkets or candy!!
The challenge at Fantabulous Cricut is Gifts Galore--make a handmade gift or gift package. This will be my entry for the challenge!
I wanted to also participate at the new Flaunt it Fridays 1st challenge which is the snowman cut on page 29 of Winter Frolic. Not having that cartridge I used Winter Woodland for my snowlady- page 47, cut 3 inches. Of course a Red Hatter wears red and purple and loves bling, so I used these colors for her hat and scarf and covered the snowlady with diamond Stickles. She really sparkles!
I just love it when I can participate in several challenges with my project. This week at Paper Playtime, the challenge is Snowflakes. Oh! I do need snowflakes for my snowlady!! The two large snowflakes are cut from Winter Woodland page 35, one is cut 1 1/2 and the smaller one is 1 1/4 inches. To add more snowflakes, I used the reverse cut from a Martha Stewart Snowflake edge punch. I added the stickles to the snowflakes and added a couple of red gemstones.To finish the purse, I wrapped shiny red tinsel around the handles and added the words "ooh la la" which were cut from Forever Young at 1/2 inch. Now can a Red Hat Lady resist this purse!!
