As I mentioned in one previous post, I was very lucky to be sent Echo Park's This and That Graceful Collection to play with by Scrapbook Supplies Online. I have created several layouts and cards, but I don't want to share everything at once, there's too much yumminess in this collection, so we need to enjoy it little by little!!!! The first thing I created was a box. I have seen so many fabulous boxes created by the talented Mara from Love Your Mother lately, that I couldn't resist temptation. With such a girly collection, I knew my box had to be a girly one, so I turned it into a handbag.

Pin It

I initially found a template HERE, but my printer refused to work on that day, so I ended up drawing the handbag myself. And boy did I have fun! I decorated it with some leftover trim I had (I love this trim and I am so sorry to see it gone!) plu stickers, chipboard, and brads from the same collection. I added some twine and flowers that also came with my Scrapbook Supplies Online box, filled the box with some tulle and chocolates, and I have a spirit-lifter for whenever a friend is in need. Wouldn't you immediately feel a little bit better if you got a handbag full of chocolates on a bad day? 
If you are getting tempted by this beautiful collection, remember Scrapbook Supplies Online has the whole collection available right now. Will be back with more yummy stuff tomorrow!
