Another Forever Young Purse

My 9 year old daughter Hallie asked me to make her a purse today. She picked out the paper which you cannot tell by this picture is very heavy duty and very glittery and beautiful. The colors are a deep rich brown and a light blue. Here is what you need to make this little bag.
Obviously you need your Forever Young Cartridge. This bag in on page 47 of your handbook.
I turned the dial all the way up to 23" and hit the Fit To Page Button and it will calculate the size for you. This purse is called the Sunglass purse.
To get started hit the Purse button and cut out your bag.
To cut out the liner that covers the Sunglass Opening hit the Shift key on the Purse button.
You then need to cut out your sunglasses. You do not need to press any buttons for the sunglasses.
 I ended up cutting out the Sunglasses and the Sunglasses in the Shadow feature.
To do this you hit the Shadow key.
Then you need the Layer button to cut out the Lenses.
That's it. The hardest part is over.
To put the purse together you should use some heavy adhesive like your ATG Gun or even a Glue Gun.

The material's I used are:

Forever Young Cricut Cartridge page 47
Die Cuts With A View "Garden Stack Pack"
Die Cuts With A View "Glitter Cardstock Stack Pack" in baby blue
Black cardstock for the sunglasses shadow and lens
A Button to put on top of the closure, I used a basic blue button that I had in my stash
Velcro for the closure, this allows you to open the purse without tearing the bag
Your ATG Gun or a Glue Gun
Blue Ribbon to tie around the handle

I filled this little bag up with mini finger nail polish, mini lip gloss, mini eye shadow for my 9 year old daughter Hallie. This would be a perfect little treat bag for a little girls birthday party or for any occasion. Have fun and I would love to see your finished bag. Thank you so much for looking at my project. I had such a great time making this for Hallie.
