JULIE'S Birthday Purse

It's a TERRIFIC TUESDAY...and I am STILL keeping up with my birthday resolution!!...Whoooowhooo!I was "commissioned" to do a PARTY for one of my customer's soon to be 8-years old little girl...Julie..... a sleep over ( for them, not me!)...so , here is what I came up with.
The "purse" is made from a LARGE SU Stamp/Supply box. I used the Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the top ( like butter!) to thread the 5/8" grosgrain ribbon around & through for the handle.
The front panel is decorated using an assortment of SU product in yummy girlie colors.
I also decorated the inside front panel.


Then, I made a sweet accordian book using coordinating papers to go with the
Petals & Paisley ds paper....and tied it all together with matching 1/4" retired grosgrain (weird how SU retired the regal rose in the smaller size & added same color in 5/8"...isnt it?)

The girls will be able to "spend the night" decorating & doo-dadding " their purses!.with an assortment of c/s, ds paper, stamps & punches....Julie's Mom is taking pictures & printing them so they can capture the moments & memories!!
The party is friday....I cant wait to see what THEY come up with!!!!
