The last bit of Parade in Pink

This is a wee little handbag I made again using justjohanna stamps. I used Michelle's little scroll (again), the lacy border, the heart with flower stamp and a gorgeous butterfly called Nora.

Again, very simple project with just some scoring and cutting into shape. The easiest way I found is to make a template from scrap paper in the size you need, and measure and cut from that. Sometimes I like to make a more slimline purse - for a more sleek, fashionable look. I just make my template wider at the sides and not so tall. I put a little square of velcro under the heart to get the whole thing to stay closed. You could also use some of that flat adhesive magnet.
I've used ric-rac here has the strap, but you could use nice ribbon, ball chain or some pearl strands.

A tiny purse this size would be good for presenting a gift certificate or rolled up cash, or a little sweet treat, or a lip gloss - well anything small really. You could even make a little book out of it!
