Cutie Pie meets Purse Box

If you have not been to Danielle's blog then you need to check it out. I saw these cute wood purse box that she did a few days ago and realized that my mom has SOOOOOO many alterables stashed away that I am sure it screaming to be altered :)

For my purse box, I used the Cutie Pie designer paper from Stampin Up. The ribbon was dyed with Wild Wasbi ink refill. I used Scalloped Square Nestabilities for the sentiment. The flower stamp and sentiment id PaperTrey Ink. The flower embellishments are from the Big Flower Embellishment Kit from QVC. If you look at the flowers closely you can tell that the center flower matches the Cutie Pie paper....and that is because it is made from the paper. I did not have a flower that would fit in between the two sizes I wanted so my mom thought to use the Stampin Up small oval punch and punched eight of them. We used the Big Bite to punch a hole in all 8 pieces at once so that they lined up. Then you layer everything with the brad. After you tighten the brad you then can move the ovals to the places you want. I hope that made sence, hehehe. If you want I can put a quick tutorial on how to do it if that will help. Just let me know.

Ok, I think I was very chatty on this post :) I hope everyone has a good rest of the day!!!

**I really wanted to show you a few other projects, but they were made for some submissions. As soon as I hear something, I will make sure to post them**

Wow...that is gorgeous! Took me a few to figure out which "center" flower was made of paper! That is so clever! Yay for you and Mom!

Beautiful purse!

This is very cute!! I actually have some of these waiting to be altered. I think you just gave me the incentive to play with these this weekend.
