It’s Party Time at my house tonight with my 3rd daughter, Lauren, turning 9 years old today. We decided no big party this year but she was allowed to invite 2 friends to Pizza dinner and a DVD.
To make it a little more special I decided to make some of the lovely Handbags that the gorgeous Makeesha Byl demonstrated at Convention for her party/lolly bags.
Here’s a picture of one empty handbag.
Isn’t it gorgeous. Makeesha is such a clever lady and so generous to share her wonderful ideas and tutorials with us all and for FREE……. I’m not sure if this tutorial is on her website yet but if you haven’t seen her other ones then pop over to her website and check them out.
Now I needed to make 7 all up which is 1 each for her friends, her 3 sisters, our neighbour and my good friends little girl and of course for Lauren too.
I literally whipped up the 7 handbags last night and have just finished doing the contents. I’ve used retired DSP as they will appreciate them regardless and it helps get rid of some of my surplus……
Here are the 7 bags full with their goodies.
Don’t they look fantastic? Well I think so anyway.I’m not even sure which one is my favourite.
Would you like to see what’s in them?
Inside each handbag is a Lolly bag which I’ve made a matching bag topper for, a pen and mechanical pencil which has matching dsp inside and a glow stick bangle.
Now I better get a move on and finish cleaning the house and do some decorating before it’s time to pick my 4 girls up from school. I’d better make that Birthday card too…nothing like leaving things till the last minute now is there…..lol
