Handbag gift box TLC258

This little gift box handbag was made for today's Splitcoaststampers Technique Lover's Challenge - TLC258 - found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=478576

The original design is from Mel McCarthy and the tutorial can be found on her blog here: http://melstampz.blogspot.com/2008/11/year-of-flowers-card-set-in-bucket.html

Thanks, Mel for the template! Love this!

I printed the template directly onto the back of my dp and then folded the dp in the middle of the bottom section so that I could run it through my Cuttlebug with one of my new Asian folders. Then I assembled it and stamped and heat embossed "for you" on a little chipboard heart for the front...filled the box with stamping supplies and candy for my friend...and tied it together with sheer ribbon...then added a little silk flower stem tucked inside. tfl
