Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, December 1, 2009 @ 12:54 AM | , , , , ,

Hi Girls! Happy December 1st! I made this Pretty Poinsettia Pocketbook gift set to have on hand for the upcoming holidays. I combined several challenges: 1. Just Us Girls template challenge - use a template to make a decorated Holiday gift box/bag, JUGS9 2. Pile it on! - Flowers & Flourishes, PIO26 3. Crazy 4 Challenges - Punch Happy, C4C13. Please by sure to visit all these challenge sites that I have mentioned for pure eye candy!!! Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!Using my Cricut Expressions machine, I made the Scalloped Pocketbook. I originally made this purse in March '09, so if you would like to see either a written or video tutorial click Scalloped Top Purse.(This will link you to my original post that includes step-by-step written instructions & my YouTube video) This lil' purse is extremely versatile & makes a wonderful gift. Here is the link to the YouTube video: click here.
Using the Cricut, Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cart, I made these 5 1/2" gift tags to fill the Scalloped Pocketbook.
I cut all the Poinsettia blossoms with the Spellbinders Poinsettia dies then embossed them using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF & sponged on a little Ranger Tea Dye ink for the soft vintagey look.
