En Pointe and freebie

We are happy to show you a new collab we have with the wonderful Cheryl aka gonewiththewind aka as Fiddle-dee-dee Designs. We have been good buddies with Cheryl ever since we started as CTMs together for Christina Renee. We have always been in awe of her scrapping skills (as probably the rest of the scrapping world) and even more so once she started designing those amazing templates of hers. Cheryl has been with us as CTM since we first started (thanks for hanging with us through it all and always supporting us, sweetie!) and we were so happy when she debuted as a template designer chick at TDC with us. This is a very exciting project and I hope you girls are as thrilled with it as we are. So here it is... En Pointe.
ps. If you look at the previous post you will find additional glitter, mask and cluster packages as well as some inspiration from our wonderful CT.



And here is a special freebie for you. It's a purse printable for you to make. I love this and will be using it to keep my girl's recital tickets and pocket photos as a keepsake. You can fill it with a small gift for someone or whatever else your heart desires. ENJOY!!!





FREEBIE HERE

Here is a mini tutorial for it as most of it is self explanatory.

You will need:
Printable above
flower
sticky velcro
glue (not gluestick)
photo paper to print on
clothespins
craft knife

1. Print the 2 sheets in the download on heavy photo paper (almost a light cardstock).
2. Cut out the purse, handle pieces, and button.
3. Score on the folded lines very gently with craft knife. I use a ruler to cut against for straighter lines.
4. Fold the purse on the scored lines. Apply adhesive on the tabs closest to the side pieces and stick it together. Use the clothes pins to hold it in place until the glue dries. I did not use glue stick as its a heavier paper and needs a stronger fixative.
5. Glue the handle pieces together. I like a stronger handle, therefore, 2 pieces. Use a paper cutter to make straighter cuts.
6. Glue a flower next to the dancer on the button.
7. Apply the velcro to the inside flap of the purse.
8. Glue the button to the outside flap of the purse.

Hugs, love and happy scrapping!
