Little Pink Purse: inspired by the Kim the Magnificent

I am now thrilled to say that I am not too chicken to try 3-D stuff. It's really easy. (I still need to polish my skills, but it's too much fun to resist). This "Purely Pomegranate" purse was inspired by Kim's tote and card here, though comparatively this is super basic. (In hindsight--after using the double-sided tape to stick this all together--I realized that I should have stamped on this--The flourish from the "Baroque Motifs" set would have look snookum embossed on here, I think. In black even?) Oh well, next one...

This version uses a template from S.U.'s demo website (I'm going to post projects on here, so if you'd like a template, just post a comment and I'll email you.)

I just doodled on little dots, added some faux-stitching, and used the pliers from my handy dandy tool kit to remove a section of beading from a boho lookin' necklace that I'll never wear (Sorry Mom--She'll be ticked when she sees this!) All I did to hold the embellishment on is punch a hole with my paper piercer & put a brad through it. Then I added the ribbon for the handle.
Easy Peasy!

My favourtie thing about this template size is that it's perfect for holding mini gift cards or S.U.'s embellishment containers (for those crafty people on your gift list.) The old cliche rings true: Good things some in small packages!
