Artiste 3-D Purse

This is just one example of the cute 3-D projects that can be found on the new Cricut Artiste Collection.  This adorable purse came together in minutes.  The Cricut cuts the score lines for you.  All you need to do is cut, score and glue.  I cut my purse twice.  Once in black cardstock and once in pattern paper from the Cruisin line.  I wanted my pieces to line up exact and figured it was easier to let the Cricut do the work, vs me hand cutting the additional pieces.  Here is a slightly different view-

Once I applied my pattern paper, I added some trim and a little bling.  The pictures do not do the purse justice, it is way cute in person!  If only I had girls, the possibilities would be endless.  These would be great for party favors, presenting presents in.....even a girls weekend project decorating purses!  Might have to do a big girls purse decorating weekend!
