Exploding Handbag, Painted with Love

Dear Crafters,

Another project we made at my craft class last Saturday, was the Exploding Handbag card, using the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Occasions catalogue. The ladies loved it and these papers looked stunning in this 3D project. Class attendees are given a written tutorial to take home so they can recreate the project in their own time.

We used a different sheet of paper from the SDSP pack with a coordinating piece of card for the top. Every single project was stunning!!

Can you see that these papers have the gorgeous gold shine through them? We used the gold foil for the handles, as well as gold foil and glimmer for the embellishments.

To make this project, you need a full sheet of 12″ x 12″ and there is very little cutting involved. In fact, the only cutting is for the handle, embellishments and the top of the bag!

Here is another one I made recently using the Year of Cheer SDSP from the recent Holiday catalogue.

and this is what it looks like when it’s open! So as you can see, it is a full sheet of 12″ x 12″ just folded. The only extra thing I added, that won’t be listed below in the product list, is some velcro dots, which I cut in half and added as the closure!

I got my inspiration for this from Amanda Charlesworth, a UK SU demonstrator. You can see Amanda’s post here.
