Paper Purse | Tutorial

Hello! I'm so happy that you have stopped by!
Today I am sharing my version of the very cute paper purses made with one 12X12 paper. These are cute for anything from gift giving to just sending some happy mail in.

I first saw these on the Cricut Facebook group. Then I looked up a tutorial and landed upon MayMay Made It's tutorial on youtube. It was easy but I wasn't sold on how the purse looked. I didn't really like the front flap being raised more than the side flaps. So I decided to change up the dimmensions to make it fit my liking. I also wanted it to look more like a real purse so I browsed Pinterest and picked what I liked from the paper purses. 

My paper purse features a flap closure with a belt buckle. 
It also has pockets on the side;
 and a pocket on the back. 
To make it more realistic I added some hand stitching. 

So check out the video tutorial to see how I did it!



Fall Wreath Featuring SVGCuts "Harvest Sunset" | Home Decor

Hello crafty peeps!

Today I'm sharing my process for a wreath that I made for this year's fall season. I knew I wanted to use some paper flowers so when Mary from SVGCuts came out with this beautiful file for fall projects, I knew I wanted to make a sunflower wreath. I've never made paper sunflowers so this was tons of fun.

"1st Day of School" Layout | Cricut

Hello and welcome!
This layout was made using this file from "Little Scraps of Heaven Designs".


Most of the papers used were by DCWV and it's a paper pad called "Stack 9", which has patterned paper that can be used year round. I used a layout pack for the paper piecings because I wanted to make sure that all the pieces went together. This was my first paper piecing layout and learned a lot. In the end, I really love how the layout came to be and I am already planning another one!
Thanks for stopping by guys! Until the next craft!
