CIS Challenge #33 Things with wings

 I was in the Stamp Asylum (Plano TX, NE corner of Park and Coit) yesterday and they had one of these little purses made from a manilla tag.  I thought it was such a cute idea that I had to come home and make one.  I had been musing about the things with wings challenge.  So when I started making this I decided to add the acetate butterfly.  The photos don't do the butterfly justice.  It's iridescent and really quite beautiful.

The tag is just a manilla tag.  Then I used Distressed Ink Chipped sapphire to ink it.  Then I used the Autumn Leave stamp #3526, 5 petal flower and stamped in Momento Danube Blue. I used some brown ribbon for the handle. The "button" is a Fancy Pants Happy Together fabric covered brad. And the butterfly is K&Company, from the Tim Coffey Cottage Garden Cool. 

As always.....Thanks for Lookin'!


  1. Wow! That butterfly is absolutely stunning, and I love that purse. Great idea! Thanks so much for playing along with CIC#33 ;D

  2. What a great little gift. Or it could be used to put a card inside instead of plain envelope.

    Thanks for playing "things with wings" with us at
    Hope to see you Friday when challenge #34 is released.
