I don't think that I have ever put so much into a paper project as I did with this treat-carrying purse.
Designed, copied and cut the template from Neenah natural white CS. Cut the individual pieces from leather-textured CS, then embossed with CB EF (I know that the tag says Coach, but I am a Dooney girl at heart ;). Used a perforating tool and white gel pen for the faux stitching effect. Attached the embossed panels and punched holes in the side. Added the jump rings, chain and lobster clasp (with stamped and hand-written metal tag). Applied an old-fashioned snap to the front and Velcro inside for the closure. The treats? Chocolate covered espresso beans, the display is my jewelry box. PT - 2
Thank you Jeanne, Angela and Lee Ann for the inspiration. Thank you all for looking and have a peaceful day.

Wow! You went above and beyond on this project, Marie! I love the embossing folder that you have used-it gives your purse the absolute best leather look! And your attention to detail in the snap, the chain, the lobsterclaw, and the stitching -wow! Outstanding job! Thanks so much for playing along in the DTGD challenges!
