Handbag style

 Hiya....Happy Monday!!
Its my turn over at CRAFTY RIBBONS INSPIRATION BLOG to share with you a creation of mine using some of the ribbons available from Crafty Ribbons. I have tried to make this look a bit like a hand bag, what do you think??
I have used the saddle stitch ribbon for  the handle and along the bottom for detail. The buttons are also from Crafty ribbons. The Die cuts are spellbinders and i thought these would work as buckles. Also used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the flap bit. The bottom paper is from Bearly-mine Designs digi papers.

 I got a glue gun for Christmas and never really got to use it until today, but my right hand thumb was so painful today it was so hard to use my double sided tape as i could hardly remove the other side but i must say the gun worked wonders, I love it!!
Hope you like my hand bag ..... thanks for stopping by 
enjoy your week
adding my card too
Come and get it chall....make it girly
Challenge 4 everybody...anything goes
