Girlfriend Gift Purses
Sometimes you just want to do something special for your friends - spoil them with a little treat and present it beautifully. These purse shaped bags decorated with Creative Charms bling are just the thing!
The bags were cut using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge with the Cricut Expression electronic die cuttting machine. I used Core'dinations gemstone cardstock. The garnet and turquoise cardstock coordinate perfectly with the pink and blue radiant sequin flowers from Creative Charms.
The bags make cute table favors for a luncheon. I used all three sizes of the gradient gem stickers on the handles. These gem stickers find their way onto most of my projects lately. They are available in so many colors, very easy to use and they stay stuck down. If your friends have been extra good, you could fill their bags with Creative Charms embellishments!
