Inkurable stampers box, bag or envelope challenge

I haven't participated in Inkurable stampers challenges over the past couple of months! somehow I could never get my head around the criteria! but I popped over last week and I thought the challenge was a great one and instantly knew that I was going to make a handbag!
So below is a handbag that I have made out of Bazzill cardstock using my own template, I covered it with Prima wash paper and the used my latin background stamp (brand unknown) with timber brown stazon ink to stamp the background and I inked the edges with a combination of brown and orange inks to give it a bit of an aged look, the swirls are Autumn Leaves and the 'just for you' is from Garden greetings stamp collection. I have also used my spellbinders scalloped circle dies to create a little embellishment on the front of the flap. The handle is from 7 gypsies and it is made out of material. Below is a photo of the bag itself.

I then decided that I would make it into a gift set and made 4 little cards decorated similar to the handbag. I also made the envelopes to go with the cards!

I adore making bags and boxes and I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with, in fact I hope to try out many more of these bags, boxes and envelopes!
Thanks for looking!
