Elegant Quilted Flap Handbag for Stuff It Collab March

My Elegant Handbag

Hello Everyone!  I am back in my craft room trying to bring some type of normalcy back into my life.  This is my project for a year-long collaboration featuring bags, boxes, baskets, and purses that you can use for gift packaging, home decor, storage, or whatever you desire.

I used two die sets from Simply Made Crafts, the landscape gift bag die set and the big bow die set.

I used my favorite color combo, black and gold.  I used a black cardstock base and then used polkadot paper from an old Halloween paper pad from Michael’s the year they had all the black and gold things for Halloween.  I don’t do Halloween, but I sure bought the paper and the bling when it went on clearance! I sold the sheets I would not use in a destash.

It closes with Velcro.

I embossed the flap with the elusive studded leather embossing folder from Crafter’s Companion.  If you ever come across that one get it because it is hard to find.  A few were re-released last fall and I was able to get one!  I used a black Velcro dot to close it. I added textured flat back bling in the corners.  On the back on the handle, I used another type of flat back bling.

On the butterfly bow, I used Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Flakes in Onyx Gold.  I  also added a flower bling.  I really like the way it turned out.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to take a look at my video before you go!
