Mini Handbag Sweet Soirée (Video)

Today we make this Mini Handbag Sweet Soirée using the stamps and Framelits from the Sweet Soirée Bundle and some of the Sweet Soirée Specialty Designer Series Paper. It’s a fun little project which could be made for any young person to carry their precious things in.

This was my prototype so to speak and after ironing out some glitches was ready to photograph and display. I’ve used Berry Burst and Marina Mist inks and Whisper White with Old Olive card stock. Keep your scraps of card stock as they can come in handy for projects such as these.

Here’s another view. Although quite plain in itself, I think the embellishment of flowers and leaves is enough to dress it up. Then I added the 1/4″ Whisper White Organza Ribbon for the handles which I think adds a delicate touch to it, don’t you.

I hope you enjoy the video and you’re able to give it a thumbs up as you go through. Thanks for watching.

This is the Daffodil delight one we made in the Video complete with Sweet Soirée Specialty Designer Series Paper on the flap. I used my Envelope Punch Board to round the corners on the flap.

Here’s a closer look at the embellishment piece which I built on the Silicon Craft Sheet available from Stampin’ Up!. I find it’s a nice size, especially for messy work at crops and camps. It’s also great for hot glue.
