Couture Handbag

By Sascha K 
 

“Hello again crafters!

I am so proud of this project, and I am very excited to share it with you.

 

When I first saw the new ink pads, I knew I had to have them all AND something to store them in so I can bring them with me if I need to.

At first, I just wanted to make something small to keep the ink pads together, but then I thought it would be nice if I could fit some other things with them.

I looked through my Graphic 45 papers to get some inspiration, and I fell in love with Couture.

Of course I had to make a handbag with that gorgeous collection!

 

So here it is!

 

 

With this bag, you will have a lot of storage space.

 

 

Inside the front, there is a pocket for your favorite dies or stamps.

When you open that down, you have three small pull tabs at the bottom to easily pull out your ink pads.

 

 

Inside the back, there are bigger pockets for other things you might need, such as tags, scortape, journaling cards, or maybe a notebook.

 

 

In the middle, there is a removable tray held in place by three chipboard buttons.

It has four rooms for your small tools, pencils, bonefolder, knife and such.

And under that is a room for the bigger things, such as scissors and punches.

 

 

On each side of the bag, there is an expandable pocket that closes with a magnet.

You can fit a lot of stuff in there as well.

 

 

I hope you like it! “ ~Sascha K
