Sweet Symmetry Mini Handbag Gift Bag

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog today, I really do appreciate it. I am bringing you the tutorial for the project I made for the Technique Tuesday blog hop, I do this on the first Tuesday of every month and we look at different techniques every time. This month it is pressure embossing, using embossing folders in other words. I just love embossing folders. They add so much to a project and I have an embarrassing amount of them! I was surprised when I first got a die cutting machine that I found myself embossing sometimes more than I die cut! I am using the Ornate Floral embossing folder for this project. I have used it on the flap of the little gift bag. I think it goes so well with this Sweet Symmetry DSP and the Stitched So Sweetly die cut is perfect for a mini handbag (purse), add some Pierced Blooms and a coloured pearl and a lovely summery bag is born.
