      Recently, I was invited back to demonstrate another paper crafting project with the local Girl Scout Troop.  I wanted to show this cute little purse with the Faux Alligator finish.  Of course, not all of us have the same “pursonality”.  So I let each of the girls choose the colors they wanted and embellishments to fit their individual personality.  We had so much fun making these.  I made mine into a gift card holder.  Any birthday girl would love to receive this purse with a gift card tucked inside.  I know I would!  :)  Some of the girls chose to make a mini photo album instead.  Again, it’s all about “pursonality”!  100_3121

     These purses use three of the Top Note Die Cuts cut using the Big Shot.  I accordion fold a piece of card stock for the bottom.  The Top Notes were covered with VersaMark and Clear Embossing Powder.  I then created the faux look by dragging my Bone Folder through the powder and heat the powder with the Heat Tool.  Really cool effect (not to mention the ews and ahs as the girls watched the powder melt and harden). :-D   The fun really began as we picked through embellishments and punch elements to add to our purses.  

     All purses were different and showed a little of the girl’s individual personality.  All the purses were beautiful…just like all of the girls!  Thanks for having me back ladies!  You all are super fantastic!  And thank you for stopping in today.  I hope you have been inspired to show your individual personality on your projects.
