Paper: Clear and Simple Stamps – July

July 23, 2011

I have a confession to make…I am a sucker for the whole “Free Makeup Bag with Purchase.” The result is an entire drawer dedicated to cosmetic bags filled with sample-sized products! Even with my surplus of bags, after seeing this month’s release I thought it would be fun to design and make my own cosmetic bag! I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could complete the project for just a few cents!

Now, it’s no secret that sewing is not my forte. I’ve recently mastered the “straight” line (using “straight” in the most liberal sense!). With that said, this is a project that ANYONE can tackle! The Beauty Secrets and Beauty Secrets II stamp sets offers a ton of images that are just ideal for designing an ultra-cute, customized bag!

This is a project that you will NOT want to miss. It’s simple and makes the perfect gift for a girlfriend…or even yourself. I’m sure I can squeeze just one more cute bag into that drawer!

Until later, Loverlies,
Amber D.

  1. How awesome is this Amber! I had to do a double take because I thought, “why is there a store bought make-up case…” Wait! You did that! Great work!
