Mini Handbag Template

I used my mini handbag template to make a mini handbag note book. You could use this template for cards & invites as well.


Small Handbag1
Small Handbag Inside2


To make the mini handbag note book you will need double sided card-stock, plain paper for the note book pages & velcro for the handbag flap.


Trace the template onto your double sided card-stock & cutout


Use Template3


You are then going to cut out 20 pieces of plain paper measuring 7.5cm x 6.5cm for the notebook. Click here for the notebook tutorial  


Use velcro for the flap & decorate!!


Here is the template - you need to print this onto a A4 piece of paper.


Template


If you decided to used this template I would love to see your creations - please leave a link so I can go have a look!! :)

Tokreen - Bathtub

I got this tiny ceramic bathtub last year & had no clue what I would do with it. I'm not crazy about painting ceramics so I decided to use my tokreen & silver ink on the bathtub...this is the end result


Tokreen Bath B


Tokreen Bath A
The tub is now in my bathroom filled with bath salts. I absolutely love the finish & I'm going to get me a few more ceramics to tokreen.


I'd love to know what you think???
