It's the first Monday of the month which means it's time for another Designer Crafts Connection hop! This month we had to create a project using the products from these three companies: Westcott Brand® Cutting Tools, who are sponsoring the hop, the Duck Brand® and VELCRO® Brand, and since October is Brest Cancer Awareness Month it had to be pink!
Make sure you keep on hopping around to the other 32 talented designers' blogs to see what great projects they have created. Just Click on the blinkie on the right sidebar to go on to the next blog.
For this challenge I decided to create a purse from the amazing products I got!
Here is how I made it:
1. I used the pink Velcro sheet to create a purse by folding it in three. The great thing about the Velcro sheet is that it is duel sided with the male and female on opposite sides! This way I didn't have to use any adhesive.
2. I cut small slits on the sides to create flaps to fold and close the purse.
3. I folded the Duck Tape so a small strip of the adhesive will show and created ruffles on the edge.
4. I add Velcro duel sided strip.
5. Then I created a scalloped Duck Tape border. I punched a piece of paper and trace the pattern on to the Duck Tape. Then I cut the pattern with Westcott craft knife.
Since I had so much fun, I decided to create another version for the purse, a "younger" version for a girl.
6. I add another Duck Tape border with a cool pattern of Hello Kitty.
7. I cut one Kitty image with the fabulous 3" fine cut scissors ad attached it to the purse.
