Today kicks off my first design team project for Tuesday Morning Sketches. Here's the sketch:
And here's my interpretation:
I thought this sketch went perfectly for a little purse project that I've wanted to do ever since I found the directions here. This is the second little purse that I made and they are just so fun to do. I do find that what makes these great is that the base is merely one full sheet (no cutting) of 12x12 paper. My goal was to find a two-sided 12x12 that allowed me to embellish the sketch on the outside but still be fun on the inside. Here's a picture of the inside:
I love how this Martha Stewart paper has the cross hatch on the outside but then polka dots on the inside. :) The directions are quite simple to follow. My first one had ribbons around the long sides like the directions show, but for this one I wanted to make sure to focus on the sketch elements. The other side has the sketch flipped with another red flower. Velcro self-adhesvies finish the deal and now I have a little purse gift bag for something fun for a friend for Valentine's Day, how great is that?
Now it's your turn. :)
I'd love if you would join me over at Tuesday Morning Sketches for this week's sketch. There's a great prize in store from KL Stampin N Scrappin (two stamps!). There's also much more inspiration on what to do with Melissa's sketch from the Tuesday Morning Sketches DT and the KLSS DT, so check it out here.
Being the guest designer this month is very exciting! Melissa has lots of fun lined up this month and I can't wait to show you my next projects. Thanks for coming by!
