What A Purse! :()


Hi Everyone!!! well its oddball Thursday and I have two purses I made. This idea came from Simple Scrapbooks. It's basically a 8x8 scrapbooking purse. What you do is, design your layout, then laminate all the pieces you'll have 5 altogether you will then punch out holes all around the sides and bottoms (not the top) then you lace plastic wire thru all the holes and tie off all corners really good. The handles are plastic tubing you find in the hardware store, stick a glittery pipe cleaner in the opening. Most of the tools you will use will be your Crop A Dile. That it's. It's real time consuming! but cute when your done. I will tell you I made a horrible mistake. I thought I was being real creative by making two purses with my kids pictures, until my oldest tells me.... hey! why are you using the purse with just Cordell's picture on it? what about me? are you playing favorites??? and then I take hers and he's like....Hey! why are you using the purse with just Chiy's picture on it! .........SHOOT ME NOW!!!!! LOL!!!!!!...........so needless to say they both sit side by side on our bookcase.... never to be used.. because NO I do not love one more then the other.... So with careful consideration for the mom's out there, I tell you this.... put both kids on ONE purse!!! .........Well that's it :) and tomorrow's the big day BLOG CANDY!!!!!! so come back.......
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!!
