"Personal Challenge"

I was sooo bored last weekend that I asked Jackie if she wanted to set a challenge for us.
Well, me and my big mouth! She set a challenge to include using these wooden handbags we purchased together about 2 years ago! What? Well it's going to take me a whole day just to find the handbag! Now where did I put it?
So then the design was set as 'vintage' and to include ribbon, bling and flowers. So our challenge was set!
This is our "Cleaning out the Cupboard" Challenge!

I painted mine first in vintage white and inked around the edges with SU Creamy Caramel.
I printed out pictures I downloaded from Paper Chic Papirskatter. I tore the edges and inked them with SU Creamy Caramel as well.

I added some flowers and bling from Bec's online store. The ribbon is from my stash.

I added a gold ribbon slide and scrunched some ribbon to go down the side. I added buttons from my stash with a kaisercraft pearl attached to the middle. The word 'princess' and crown is a rub on.

I finished it off with a tag. It has the same pictures as the bag but just reduced. I added some charms and a chain to hang off the handle along with some ribbon tied in knots.
The whole bag was then sprayed with pearl glimmermist spray.

So after me grumbling about having to search for 'THE' handbag we brought 2 years ago, I was quite happy with the end result. I have made it vintage looking, added ribbon, bling and flowers. I think our personal challenge is done!

So let's pop over to Jackie's and see what this creative lady has made with 'THE' handbag challenge!!

Keep creating, Kylie xo
