Handbag style card holder with matching cards using Flower Shop

Going back to basic colours (black/white) with a hint of pastel colour (coastal cabana) makes this handbag and card set really stand out. I found the original at this great website here. I have changed the colour scheme, decoration on the front and back and designed the cards

The handbag set was a theme for a class I did recently including 3 cards. The handbag doubles up as a card holder and has that antique feel with the brass brads. 

Colours can be varied to suit any occasion whether it be a thankyou gift, unique christmas/birthday gift or just a lovely decoration to compliment your homes colour scheme......


Each person received half a pack of Modern Medley designer series paper and they could choose which papers they wanted to create the handbag,  along with a choice of antique brads and ribbons. They had lots left to take home so more could be made




The handbag opened out to show the cards inside. There is enough room to fit 5 cards and envelopes.



The front and back of the bag was decorated the same with very vanilla seam binding ribbon, and chantilly or victoria crochet ribbon and a stamped flower from the flower shop stamp set.







Sentiments are from Sassy Salutations.




I hope you liked the handbag and matching cards.

My next class is on Sunday 13th  and Monday 14th October 10am - 12pm when we will be embossing a glass candle holder, making a decorative holder for the glass to sit in and a card.I still have a couple of spaces left so please contact me for further details if you are interested in joining us to make this fun project
