Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Sorry that I have missed a couple of weeks of the challenges.  I find that I don't have my free time with my kiddos home all day.  Here is this weeks challenge, Click here to see the wonderful examples by their design team.

ABC - it's easy as 1-2-3....

This week our challenge is an ABC challenge - Anything But a Card!

Here is my example.  This is a bag that I made about this time last year for one of my clubs as a gift.

Here is the side view - showing the bag:

All I did was take a small white bag that I bought at my local craft store and I cut the top of the bag off to approx. 4".  I used my coluzzle circle and cut a circle out of Tulip cardstock.  Then I just cut off the bottom of the circle to make the purse flat on the bottom.  I decorated the cardstock using paper from the Animal Cookies paper pack, some ribbon and some buttons.  Then I adhered the white ribbon for the handles onto the outside of the bag and then adhered the cut-off circle on top.  Added a tag that says "for you" and you have a super easy and fast way to make a cute purse gift bag.

Too cute! I love it! And I hear you about not having time to scrap with children home for the summer. I am just starting to try to do some challenges, but it seems the moment I try to sneak off and do some 3 year old is right there wanting to do it with me! LOL!!
