Problem: You have a niece about to turn 14....what do you do???
Solution: Through the miracle of the crafting gods, you stumble across a project that fits the bill to a "T".
I was lucky enough to find such a solution here. I had seen these amazing purses about, but one had never really crossed my mind until I stumbled across it. By pure coincidence, I had also purchased some wee notepads to decorate for stocking fillers. Too good!!!!
This is the explosion purse I made for Miss 14 (who happens to be a fan of purple!!)...
I was also lucky enough to find a a shop that sold individual heart shaped chocs that matched the DP perfectly.
Next was the notepad.....
....and the inside.....
I made a template of the cover and then measured the 'gaps' between the centres of the circles, then used a 3/16" circle punch to cut the holes....perfect fit.
Now for the card......I carried through the scallop circled theme from the bag and used it on the card.
...and the set together....
I had so much fun playing with this, I think I may stow it away again for another one of those desperate times. BTW...was a hit with Miss 14 too.....as a further coincidence would have it, she received a pinky purpley shade writing pen from her parents which also matched the notepad perfectly.
Thanks for popping by.
