AFSS 21 All Boxed Up Water Melons


Happy Friday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
I finally have something to share with you! It's about time! I have never made these
purse's/totes before, so I figured it was high time I challenged myself! Allison's challenge this week prompted me to get on it! I had already begun a water melon card, then when I saw Allison's challenge, my little noggin' got to thinking!
I've seen so many of the fabulous SU! gals making these wonderful bags, purses and boxes, just easy as pie for those rocking gals! So I figured what the heck I am going for it! Worse thing that can happen is I trash it and start over right? I had already made a watermelon card that I was about to post, then I starting thinking I should just cut it in half and make one of these darling purses!
I remembered I had a watermelon die for my Big Shot, so I used it to secure my brads to the strips that became my handles. That worked out well, whew!
Thanks to Allison for having this challenge, or I would have never tried this project!
I did need to try something outside the box, at least for me it was! He he! Okay, Allison, so where is your white on white card? You go girl! (laugh)!
Thanks to the great tutorial on Angie's blog Chic n' Scratch, I think I watched the video 10 times!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting today! On to Beate's sketch for the weekend!

White on white challenge ending Sunday!
The entries thus far have been so lovely! Good luck to all of you! Thanks for playing along!
