Bitty Bunny Purse

This Bitty Bunny Purse is the Technique Lover's Challenge (TLC211) today ar SCS. It is so fast and easy to do that I plan to make several more for my daughter's girlfriends. The first time I saw these was on the 'Paper Pleasing Ideas' blog and I wanted to try them then, but didn't...so today when I went to check out the challenge for today, there it was again with a diect link to Julie's tutorial - so I did it up quick and just love how my little project turned out!
.
I used Certainly Celery card stock and the matching Designer paper that came in the 6 color stacks of 6"x6" paper. The stamp was from a vintage Stampin' Up! set called 'Spring Things' that came out in 1991. I punched the rabbit image out with a McGill scallop Punch, and colored the bunny details with my Prisma Pencils. I added the little curls around the outside edge of the square with the celery colored pencil, and if you click on the picture above, you will see that I went around the whole shape of the bunny with a very light gray,which almost seems to lift it up from the paper. Stampin' Up!'s new Eyelet Lace Punch trimmed the top and inside pocket of the purse. One last detail that I changed was using 3/8" white grosgrain instead of the handles as paper just wouldn't hold up against my 4 year old little girl!

Inside the purse, I stuck 3 small bottles of Bath & Body Works Hand Gel to show size only. I would strongly advise against ever giving these to any small child as they are primarily alcohol based, and could (and have actually) caused alcohol poisoning resulting in injury or death in children that were tempted to taste those pretty smells. These hand-wash gels are great to use when you need clean hands, but you should always watch and make sure that children rub their hands until totally dry so they do not try this. {In case you didn't realize this, it is good information to know!}

C-ya later!
