Good morning crafter's! Today I have another fun project you can make with your Envelobox Creator.
The creator of Crafter's Companion, Sara, has an amazing Video showing you step-by-step, how to create this darling three-dimensional handbag. It is a fabulous way to give a gift certificate or small gift to a friend. I decided to make my handbag for my four year old daughter, Lara. Since her favorite color is blue, I started with a bright blue glitter card stock.
Once I made the handbag using Sara's Video instructions, it was time to decorate the outside of the handbag. I started with some plain brown card stock and painted it yellow.
Before the paint dried, I liberally sprinkled iridescent glitter over the pieces. I pressed down on the glitter to make sure it would really stick to the painted chipboard. (I am still finding glitter everywhere).
Next I colored my S.w.a.l.k. Belle of the Ball stamp with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out the image. I applied Gold Stickles to her crown and Crystal Stickles to her gown. Because the markers are alcohol based, the Stickles will not smudge your coloring at all. To adhere the little princess to the painted chipboard, I used a very tacky quick drying glue. I then glued down all the chipboard to the handbag.
Spectrum Noir Colors used: hair: IG8, IG10; skin: EB1, EB2; dress: BT2, BT4; fan: BT4, BT5; crown: CT2, CT4; eyes: EB8; mouth: DR1
I added eyelets to the top of the handbag where the ribbon was threaded for extra durability. It is for a four year after all ;) I also added small adhesive magnets to the inside of the bag and the flap for easy opening and closing. Finally, I added a small epoxy sticker to the flap.
You can see here how happy Lara was with the finished results. She totes around all kinds of stuff in it now.
I hope you'll give this project a try. Please share it with us on our Facebook.com as well. We love seeing all the awesome projects our fans create!
Have a great weekend!
