~ Bucket Handbags ~

Welcome, friends!

I am posting a wee bit early tonight as I have to be up at the crack of dawn tomorrow.    You know, the mornings that I don’t need to get up early, I’m wide awake at 5:00am.   But since I have to be up that early tomorrow, I am sweating it! LOL

A couple of days ago I received a private message on Splitcoaststampers from Joanne (sleepyinseattle) after I commented on a cute bag she had made.    She sent me the link to a forum where Mel (stampztoomuch) had posted the templates and instructions.   I just {heart} this little bag!

I liked them so much that I made TWO of them.   I intend to fill them with goodies and give them to my aunties.   You can find the template HERE.

My butterflies are cut out of vellum and pink pirouette.   I cut the “body” off the pink pirouette butterflies and adhered it to the vellum to cover up where the butterfly adheres to the bag.
