Bling it up !!!

Hello crafters..

Today, we celebrate Children's Day in India and am glad to be posting this!
I have something really cute  to share with you  today…my DT project for Scrapping4Fun Challenge#30 Rachelle wants us to create“anything with a "bling” this time…easy right??? So people, get blingy and look forward to seeing your creations.


I had to make a gift for my little one’s friend as it was her birthday yesterday. She is all of 5yesrs old and was very clear she wanted shades of purple this time…bless the pinks lol! I took this opportunity to make something cute and blingy for a little girl which she will fancy and at the same time be of some use too! So here is what I made…

A cute little handbag!
This empty cereal carton saw some daylight and made it into a cute little bag which can house loooots of goodies inside and there is a surprise at the back too…hold on for that!

Since the colors choice was made, the making of it was easy! I chose lovely PP from DCWV as pretty as a peacock paper pack and started covering the cereal box, inside out! This made the box really sturdy…the inside has a lovely paper in blue.
I then created a window and covered it with acetate ( another use of trash from die packaging). This window creates a lovely view of the inside! I have lined the window with purple bling.
I then stamped this lovely fairy image from Little darlings(Itsy Bitsy) and colored it with DI and applied silver glitter for some sparkle!

The flowers are handmade using TH die and Itsy Bitsy. The top part I have attached a lovely floral white lace which gives the look of a flap for the bag and has more bling. I am sure little girls can carry off that much and more!

A little birthday tag using Inkadinkado ornate frames and sentiment has been heat embossed in silver and colored with Di and more bling here!
Are you ready for the back…
Here it is…
I have made a cute oval panel in foam and kept the decoration minimum here, guess why???
 I told you it is not just a bag and can be used to store something too in the outside…any guesses! I won’t prolong the suspense here…this is what it can eventually be used as….
I also bought a few pair of earring for the little girl which has been hooked to the foam panel!!
 Now isn’t that a double bonanza…goodies inside and outside! My daughter is already screaming with joy looking at this…
This re assures me that her friend will like it too! I have attached Velcro strips on the top for the closure and lovely twisted lavender chord as a string to carry and flaunt this designer bag, Lol!
Here is my angel carrying the fairy handbag! I hope she will part with this one now…I may have to make another one for her now!
 I asked her if this bag is cute and pat came the reply.." No Amma, this is NOT cute, It is wow, beautiful, nice, very nice, good, very good"...Well I got it...that's the world of a 5 yesr old!
Pretty simple eh? I would like to have my fairy bag enter these challenges…

    1. Thanks Sonia...I did have problems, when she posed with it, she assumed it is going to be hers! I had to convince her with a promise of making another one!

  13. Your daughter is a cutie!!! I can't believe that's a cereal box and how you transformed it. The details are gorgeous and girly. The fact you made a box out of it is a totally wow factor, but then you added storage, even better. Wonderful job Rupa :o)
