I did it! Mini Explosion Purse is a success!

After a very frustrating day of almost 12 hours trying to design yesterday in Design Studio, I FINALLY got the project finished that I really can't wait to share with you all.  My poor laptop is limping along with Windows Vista, awaiting the new 7.0 version and hoping that will fix all its ails!  DS kept shutting down on me, and I know it's my computer, because I don't have the same issues at work.  Anyway.....

I have finally completed and cut an adorable little Mini Explosion Purse Box.  I can't wait to use it for all the small gifts I give to my nieces.  It's perfect for jewelry, lipstick or other small makeup, or even a few Hershy's kisses.  I was so pleased with it last night that I kept playing with it, popping it open and closed.  Kids will love it!

If you want to get prepared ahead of time, you'll need some stick-on velcro dots for the closure, and some ribbon or cord for the handle (sized to fit through a standard hole punch and tied in a knot on the inside).  It's a small purse, so scraps of ribbon that are at least 10-12" should work.  You need the George cartridge and 12"x12" cardstock. Here's the "teaser" picture, but I need to make a tutorial for it because the folding is a little tricky until you understand how they go together.  I plan to post it mid-week, so check back or sign up to follow me, and look for it in time to make them over the Thanksgiving holiday. 

Cricut Kisses! Cindy

I can't wait to see how it turned out. I have a very dear friend that collects purses and since money is tight maybe I can make her one of these for Christmas :)

Bridget, this will be perfect! My daughter works for Coach, and I'm going to make them for each of her co-workers with little "Coach" tags on them! I will post a pic of one when I get them done.
