Close To My Heart inspired Explosion Purse

I am a new Close to My Heart Consultant - and I want to say that I am sooooooooooo in love with their products.  The best thing?  Their scissors!!!   If you want a pair of scissors that cut right to the tip of your paper, these are the scissors for you!  Not only that...their paper is amazing!  I never gave much thought about the quality of paper before...but you definitely notice it when you use their papers.  The only thing I am not sold on?  Their glue.  hmmmmm, not really sure why...just don't care for it.  Give me a ATG gun anytime and I'm happy!!!!

I found a link for an explosion purse and decided that I would use my new "Dotty For You" paper pack from CTMH.  If you are interested, you can get this pack for $5 when you order $35 worth of products.  Please take a look at my site and especially the 'while supplies last' section.  I have to say that the journal, board book and soft set eyelet tool setter....and the paper packs are an amazing deal!

Well, here is the explosion purse I made.  I used K. Andrew Design Stamps for the sentiment.  The stamp set is called "Winged Things" and it is perfect for all the butterflies I have flying around on this purse.  I can't wait to decorate it with pictures/notes, etc....on the inside.

Front of the purse

Back of the purse - this is a dryer sheet butterfly!!!! Did you see I even found matching ribbon???

Inside of the explosion purse...lots of room for notes, pictures, etc...and even room for a little gift!

Thanks so much for taking a peek at this project...If you get real creative - make many purses as favors, making them at 1/2 size!  

Good Luck and happy papercrafting!!!
