SUO 93 - Boxes, Bags and Baskets

I'm back!  Phew ... it has been a whole fortnight since I've posted a project!  I've certainly had plenty of time to think about what I was going to make for this Boxes, Bags and Baskets Challenge for SUO but have been away on a relaxing holiday with hubby and only just arrived home on Sunday night.

I loved having a break and we had a very special time eating out, snorkelling in the Barrier Reef, sight seeing in and around Port Douglas (far North Queensland), shopping, reading and relaxing by the resort pool but it's good to be home. It was certainly a lot of fun to get back into my craft room yesterday and make this little glamour bag in between the loads of washing and unpacking that I had to do.

Using a piece of Fancy Foil Designer Vellum, I followed a Mini Bag Tutorial from Silvey's Craftroom then added a 3/4" x 4 1/2" Gold Foil edge, cut with the Fringe Scissors to the top of both sides of the bag, made a clasp using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (2" x 4 1/2"), then added some Gold Sequin Trim for the handles and finished it off with a beautiful rose made from the Spiral Flower Die and a Large Pearl.

I hope you will play along over the next fortnight and share your boxes, bags or baskets with us.
