Some new stuff

Ah, finally I found some time to edit the photos of my latest project... no quilling in this sorry :(.. yeah somehow I want to incorporate quilling in whatever I do... This is a box purse I made, well, keeping my daughter in mind but after it was done, I have no mind to give it to her... it looks cute and I am worried she will throw it away somewhere! yeah you never know what she will do hehehe... I wanted to do something similar to the inspiration that Tanvi, designer on the Color Conceptions team (the purse like box ) but since I do not yet own a scoreboard, I was not confident that I could pull it off. So I decided to make this box purse, I found a tutorial here, hope you can access it as well. I decided to use my pattern paper that have been lying around for quite sometime and also make use of the doilies and pearl stickers that I had hoarded recently (love shopping for crafty stuff, but always run out of money :( ). Here are some photos...

I love clicking the photos and editing, because the doily and the pearls and the pattern paper gave it such a cute feel... Instead of the paper handle as mentioned in the tutorial, I used a ribbon that was lying in my stash so I could add a bit more pink to the project. I used velcro as shown in the tute. For the tag, used up an old price tag that I had saved up for quite a bit of time, pasted the same pattern paper, distressed the edges with my metal ruler, added the same elements as the box purse. The blue satin flower was bought but the other paper flower, I received as a part of my blog candy prize. Just attached a sentiment, did not want to but I did...

Hope it looks good, how do you guys like it.. do let me know..
