Mini Scrap Handbag

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a project that I made a while ago for my little sister Maria. It is a mini scrapbook inside a handbag, (or purse for my US visitors).

The outside of the bag is stamped with the love sentiment from the hostess set, 'Cute by the Inch'. I used a little clip from Stampin' Up! on the closure with a magnet underneath to hold it closed. The faux brads are made with a 1/4" punch covered in Crystal Effects.

The flower is made with the Fancy Flower punch, done in Whisper White with inked edges. Inside the little scrapbook are pictures of Maria's little girls Mia and Phoebe. It was a quick and simple gift to make and Maria was delighted with it.

The final photo shows Phoebe and her Daddy Mike, giving reading a bit of a try. She doesn't look convinced does she? LOL

Hope you like todays project - back soon with more.
