Peachy Purse Bag





Hello everyone! Here is a super cute and fun bag that I made for Peachy Keen's Anything Goes challenge this week. I am always in need of small gift bags, so this will be perfect for my stash. Can you tell that I am DYING for summer by the colors I am using? LOL!
I started by cutting the bag from Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More at 12 inches on my 12 X 24 mat. I cut it with my Gypsy so that's how I was able to get it so big. I have to admit that this is my very FIRST time using the 12 X 24 inch mat. I love how big this bag turned out and might be using the big mat a lot more!
I then cut the front layers by using pattern paper and the negative from the first bag cut as a template where to place my pattern paper. After that was cut, I hand trimmed all the pieces 1/4 inch smaller and glued them onto the bag. I cut the cherries from Hello Kitty Greeting's and stamped the faces with Peachy Keen's Cornie's Faces. The tag was cut from Winter Frolic and I attached it to the bag with some decorative fiber. To finish I added a strip of lace to the bottom of the bag, added a ribbon handle, and added a layered flower to the center flap with a brad. I also added a velcro dot to the flap to close the bag and the sentiment was stamped from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1.
I just love how this bag turned out! Thanks for looking and have a great night!

Love the bag. Thanks for info on the larger mat. I always wondered if it would be too big to acutally handle - but you proved it's not.

Cute purse! I've used 12 x 24 paper a few times, especially when I'm cutting out purses or boxes from TBBM or the Forever Young cartridges and it's really nice to be able to cut things out at a bigger size.
