Bliss - A Girl's Purse Anything Goes

Today's news... for this project,
 Please head over to The Paper Variety TOP 5
Hello everyone! This is my third post for today so I'm posting something different.
I made a girl's purse in black, white, and pink colors using Zebra print paper from DVWV, and solid colored cardstocks from local paper brands.

 To make the purse, I downloaded a template from Splitcoast Stampers. The template is a bit small so I enlarged it on photoshop to fit 8.5"x13" size paper. I printed the template on white cardstock, cut it out,
then traced it on the black cardstock. I have to do these steps, though, since I don't have a cutting machine {I'm still contemplating if I really need to buy one}.

I scored the sides using scor-pal then measured the patterned papers for the flaps and sides.
Using a 2-sided tape, I stuck the sides together. I punched a hole on each side for the handle.
For the embellishments, I used several Spellbinders dies: 
Beaded Circles, Kaleidoscope, and Parisian Motifs. I added a pink pearl brad in the middle and some gems around it. To attach the handle, I used small pink brads.

I stamped the sentiment bliss on a tag created using Cuttlebug Provo Craft dies. Sentiment is also from Provo Craft line Simply Chic Stamps. I used a strand of pearls to hold the tag and further embellished it with a satin ribbon.

I had so much fun making this project, that I'm willing to do a hundred of these (LOL!)
