I started my project off using the Beautiful Board 4D Purse With Small Shelf Do It Yourself Laser Cut Chipboard Kit. The paper collection I chose was Stamperia "Threads" I cut the paper to the sizes needed to cover the purse and then I machine stitched around all the pieces. This kit is so easy to put together, you can also visit HERE to watch the assembly tutorial. I also have my process video below so you can watch me create this project. I did some fussy cutting of the paper collection and to enhance the cuttings I used Gawdie Girl Diamond Fine German Glitter Glass. The butterfly I used on the front of the purse are the Butterfly Kisses Cherry Blossom Single Side Printed Butterflies.
This 4D purse also comes with this sweet little shelf that allows you to decorate it. I decided to use the Beautiful Board Small Wire Dress Form Chipboard. The dress form comes with a two little clothes hangers so I attached them onto some metal hitches to the back of the shelf. Then using some Reneabouquets Trim-Ivory Pleated Tulle, I created a little skirt for the dress form. I then added some itsy bitsy buttons to a glass corked jar. Inside the purse comes to slots to hold different items and I created here a tag, stitched around it and decorated it with Beautiful Board Small Button Doll Laser Cut Chipboard. I also created a policy envelope to hold photos.
To go with this sweet purse I made an accordion mini album, you can watch me create this in the video below. To decorate the front and back covers of the album I used Beautiful Board Linoleum Elements Laser Cut Chipboard. I then applied some Beautiful Beads Sweetheart Candy Flatback Pearls randomly on the panels. The flowers I used on the purse and the mini album are Mini Whisper Pink Mulberry Paper Roses & Leaves Set, and the leaves are Beautiful Bits - Skeleton Leaf Laser Cut Chipboard. The front focal point on the mini album I used Beautiful Board Medium Follow Your Heart Doilies Chipboard and the icing on the cake is the White Pearl And Rhinestone Button Set Of 2. The butterfly used here is Butterfly Kisses Aurora Borealis Pink Single Side Printed Butterflies,
Pictured here is the inside of the accordion mini album. Also pictured is the side of the purse which I created a dangle to hang and added several different charms, Shabby Sweet Scissors In Silver., thimble, pearls, spool of thread, bobbin etc. I hope you were able to gather some inspiration. Wishing you a month filled with creativity!
