 it's my turn to share my inspiration for this month's challenge CSCC #13 Anything Goes..

I have made a paper handbag with accordion fold pockets .

Materials needed:

1. Card stock ( 5 nos  of the size 12*12 and 5 of the size 9*9)
2. Pattern paper
3. scissors
4. Glue
5. Embellishments of your choice
6. Velcro or magnet for opening and closing of the bag

This bag measures 9"*7" . I have used Recollections scrap card stock and Recollections embossed paper for this project.

Steps for making:

For the handle I cut out a black card stock measuring 17"*3/4".

I embellished the handbag using border punches and pearls. The roses are made using cold porcelain.  I attached a piece of Velcro at the opening of the bag. Decorated the handle using a rhinestone chain.

This is how the bags looks like when it is opened This folder bag can be used for storing tags, gift cards, visiting cards, travel brochures etc.

I got the idea and inspiration for this project from the blog pion design.
