For this month's Blog Hop the new Creative Team is working with a Spring theme and you are going to love their projects!  

I am working with Samantha's 3D Purse and Label Silhouette File to create a Spring gift box which is the perfect size for rolling up a pair of gardening gloves and adding in a small seed packet!




 Samantha Walker Supplies:
Silhouette Cuts: 3D Purse and LabelFlower Woodcut,
and Antique Rose Seed Packet
Papers: Traditions Collection (Carta Bella)

Other supplies:
Cardstock: American Crafts
Ribbon: Ribbons Unlimited
Twine: The Twinery


Tutorial:
1.  Cut out the 3D purse using your Silhouette.
2.  Fold on all the score lines.
3.  Place adhesive on the two small sides and adhere them to the side of the purse with the slots.
4.  Bring up the other side of the purse and insert the tabs into the slots.
5.  Fold the top piece over the purse as shown.
6.  Tuck the top tab into the slot.
7.  Cut the Flower Woodcut using your Silhouette and layer it together.  Cut a small piece of blue cardstock manually for a background and add in coordinating 1/2" strips on the top and bottom as shown.  Adhere the flower to the background using foam adhesive.  Add a flower jewel to the center of the flower.
8.  Apply the flower to the purse using foam adhesive and tie a ribbon around the purse.  Tie a piece of coordinating twine around the ribbon bow.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
