Vintage look handbag to make

This is a super little project which is fun to make and not too challenging.
It is compliments of the scor-pal website projects. I have altered it marginally.

I love this paper from Graphic 45.
A close look will reveal that the vintage edging is curtain material that I ''Tim stained'' and ruffled by hand pleating onto sticky strip as I worked with a tooth pick.
The flower and leaves are form Hooked on Craft with some Tim ink.
There is a magnetic closure in the bag and a label to match.
Oh and the weeds are home grown in my garden!!

Thanks for looking

Oh Robyn this is just gorgeous! You would never know it was Graphic 45...it looks like material! Love the curtain trim too and the flower is very pretty.
Ps. thankyou so much for your kind comment on SGL. I really enjoy recycling/upcycling things like you! You might be interested in a book I bought recently "Rediscovered Treasures" - a new life for old objects. It has the best ideas, some really different!
OP shopping is my other hobby...Love it, love a bargain!
