Totally Tabs Handbags


Ingredients:

Card/Paper: Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Apricot Appeal, Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Totally Tabs, Sincere Salutations, Season of Joy
Other: Soft Subtles Brads, Certainly Celery 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon

Method:

The idea for the handbags is one that I saw on someone's blog, but sadly I have lost the link. They are made from the Stampin' Up Round Tab punch, and stamped with three of the stamps from the Totally Tabs stamp set. The handles were made using two circle punches - 3/4" and 1" in diameter to create a narrow curved strip. The pointed flap is made from a 1" heart punch - folded over the top of the bag so that the point is on the front. A 1" circle for the flap on the middle bag, and a freehand cut strip with a rounded end for the flap on the right hand bag. I used my new Scallop edge punch from Stampin' Up to do the edge of the Chocolate Chip card. You can't see very well, but the vanilla card squares behind the handbags have been stamped with the swirl stamp from Season of Joy with Versamark and embossed with clear powder. They were cut and dry embossed with a Nestability square die. The flowers at the bottom of the card are stamped with the same stamp as the green bag. Finished with a greeting from Sincere Salutations.
