Christmas Days with Creations by AR-Day 9






From December 6 to 15, the Creations by AR Design Team will be sharing ideas for presenting holiday gifts using templates from Creations by AR!  Everyday for ten days, our designers will bring inspiration to you with our holiday projects. Join us daily at our FaceBook Page or at our group on Paper Craft Planet.



I am showing you this darling Surprise Purse template today!  I chose some pretty Echo Park DP and added a few festive embellishments to finish it off.  This template has a fun surprise when you open it up-up pops a gift card(or you could attach a piece of candy or picture or whatever makes you jolly!) The sides of this purse are pleated, so there is room to attach something bigger than a gift card if  you like.  I latched the first purse with a magnet, and the second with a round set of velcro. I think the velcro worked the best for this template!

I added a fun little gold bow with bells and a fringy red ribbon handle for the finishing touches. The font I used for the sentiment is Deftone Stylus.  Super Simple!

You can see how the inside card pulls up when you open the purse.

This purse belongs to Mrs. Claus! I won't tell you the whole story behind this card (it took forever to find the white feathers-thanks Erin who drove me all over her town), but I will  say that I had to give that white feathery handle a serious haircut to calm it down LOL!

On this Surprise Purse, I cut the top attached piece a wee bit smaller so more black would show and added a silver belt buckle.  The little shiny holly leaves are from Michaels. The feathers from JoAnn's.


DAILY PRIZE GIVEAWAY: One winner each day will receive one template of their choice. The Daily Prize winner will be chosen from comments left on the designer's blog. Winners to be announced the following day on the AR FaceBook Page and AR Group on PCP.

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: One random winner will be chosen to receive ONE TEMPLATE A MONTH FOR SIX MONTHS beginning January 2013! The Grand Prize Winner will be randomly chosen from comments left on the AR FaceBook Page and AR Group on PCP.  Winner to be announced December 16, 2012.

Thank you for joining me on Day 9!  Lisa hosted Day 8 and you can see her Ornament Box HERE. Lyn will be hosting the last day- Day 10 on December 15th.  Just click HERE! to find her Christmas Days projects featuring the 3D Fireplace card and 3 Framed Boxes template!

I want to know whats inside Mrs. Claus' purse;) Its not fair to tease us, Sue. Can't we just have a hint, maybe even a little peek?

Darling purses, the feathers would also look nice on an angel project.
