I found this great tote on Lyssa's blog, it was so easy to put together and very quick, really I mean it. Ok well the tote itself was quick, but deciding to dye my pretties flowers and then add shimmer paint to them has taken forever to dry. I have no clue why reds take so long to dry out.
Well to make this tote, you need a single sheet of DSP, a piece of coordinating cardstock, some fab and tons and tons of ribbon sticky strip!!! Then embellish as you desire!! I did use Riding Hood Red DSP, I know retired, but I have to use it at some point, and of course used the coordinating ink too, again may as well use it!
To cover up where the ribbon ends met in the back I put a cute message from the Simply Said stamp set and punched out with the modern label punch, then added some halfback pearls again from the pretties kit for a little extra bling.
The card uses all the same supplies as the tote, except this time I used 1/4" grosgrain to accent.
Really easy peasy.
Also to dye the pretties flowers I decided to just smoosh them directly into my ink pads. Then added the frost white shimmer paint to the entire certainly celery flower, and just to the tips of the riding hood red. I really layered it on so it's actually still drying. Blinged these up with the rhinestone brads from the pretties kit and voila!
Card and Bag Together
