Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Pearls or Gems

An easy challenge this time at Crafty Cardmakers - use pearl or gems on your creation.  I wanted to try something different this time, so I made this cute little purse.  It really is a decent size for small gifts.  I used two tutorials for this.  One for the purse and one for the straps.  The purse was made using one piece of 12 x 12 cardstock, a scoreboard and scissors!  The straps and clasp were made from an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock and striped washi tape was added for the trim.

The tutorial for the purse can be found here.  I suggest watching it from start to finish first, then craft away.  Before you know it, you will have made several!  They are fast and fun to do.  MayMay is an awesome teacher and also has her own line of stamps.
