Everyone Screams for Ice Cream

I am new to The Artful Bag Challenge but it is right up my alley, means I am such a purse addict.... love love love them. This months theme is to take something an alter it into a bag. So I chose my Baskin Robbins ice cream container and spoons.

This was such a fun challenge and it gave me a chance to use my new G45 paper line "Curtain Call". There is alot of details on this so I took a few pics. The clasp was a fun old garter I purchased at a junk store. The inside was decorated with snipits of Curtain Call and then Mod Podge was applied to seal it all down. (Kind of hard to see but you get the idea.)
The spoons were used to attach the handle, which was braided Curtain Call paper.
The little spoon I used to be a handle for the mirror, which is tucked away in a little pocket.
And the lid got blinged up with Prima flowers, pearls, peacock feather and Curtain Call die cuts.
Hope you enjoyed!! Hop over to Artful Bag Challenge for some fun. Next month is going to be 'EMBELLISH".... xoxo

Wow, wow and wow is all I can say! Oh I absolutely love your ice cream bucket bag. The Curtain Call papers in the black and white are fabulous (love Graphic45!) and the way you used all the spoons for the handles and mirror are so clever and fun. Oh and the braided handle...brilliant! It's a perfect little bag for a night at the theater. Love it, and thank you for sharing and playing along :)

Oh my gosh, this is GORGEOUS! If I didn't know it was an altered ice cream container and spoons, I wouldn't have believed it. You are so freakin clever, which is meant as more of a compliment than it may sound. I'm blown away by the creativity of your bag. There is so much to look at and enjoy - and I really love how you used those papers. You ought to send this into the Graphic 45 blog, it is that wonderful and original!

Ingenious! I can't believe this started out as an ice cream bucket! It's just fantastic!
PS. Eating the ice cream in order to reuse the bucket had to be fun, too!

Loving your creativity in turning an ice cream into such a sophisticated bag. I'll have to start saving mine too.
