Beautiful Friendship Collection

The Beautiful Friendship Paper Collection reminds me of blue jeans and lots of pretty pink flowers in a boho sort of way. What better way to celebrate friendships this summer than with a Swag Bag or Card Clutch in the form of a cute little Purse.

Swag Bag


Thank you to Julie Carriere for the inspiration and free Design Space file found here:
The finished bag measures 5 1/4 x 3 1/2 for the Artiste Cartridge owners. 
You need to own Cricut Artiste, Artistry and Flower Market to make my version of the bag. 
My free DS file link is below which adds both the layered Bashful Daisy and Ball Jar images. 
The white flower center and jar "glass" are White Glitter Paper. The sentiments are Silver Foil Paper.  I used the Clear Shimmer Pen to cover the Bashful Daisy layers.

Card Clutch

The Second 3D Project made with Beautiful Friendship is this pretty and clever Card Clutch in the shape of a Purse. It holds four note cards and envelopes.
Dee Slater has a video on Splitcoast Stampers that can be found here: Card Clutch Tutorial
I added the handles which are Zip Strips from the tops of the Beautiful Friendship Papers studded with gold sequins and a bashful pearl in the center.
