Christmas Clutch Bags

I've been busy over the past week making Christmas Gifts for family and friends.
While we were at Regional last month, one of the demonstrators from the US shared with us how to make this cute little clutch purse. I gave her my contact details and she sent me the instructions.
They are really easy to make, and the original design uses 1 sheet of 12x12 Designer Series Paper, plus some ribbon to hold it in place. Although this was already cute, I decided to slightly adjust it and add some handles and dress it up a little!

I had some papers floating around, not sure of the company, so I made some of these for the girls in Anthony's office as a little Christmas Gift and I filled them with yummy Favourite Chocolates! They loved them!

The second batch were for some of my fellow "Paper Angels" demonstrators. Last week I went down to Liz's (my upline) for a brainstorming session, and as there were only a few attending I decided to make a little something for them.
This time I used assorted Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers, coordinating cardstock and a little ribbon and bling, I also filled these with yummy Favourite Chocolates. It is also a great way to use up some of your retired 12x12 Designer Series Papers.

A girl can never have too many bags!!

I thought I e-mailed my e-mail address, but I've had nothing but computer issues. If you have already sent a copy of the directions for these fabulous bags, I apologize - I never got it. My computer seems to be up and running again and I would love if you could send me a copy. Thanks!
