Inspired by Phranc's piece in the holiday issue of Craft, I was going nuts making gift boxes from grocery paperboard scraps and magazine pages (of which I keep multiple file folders. I have a bit of a magazine addiction and the only thing that keeps me from suffocating beneath a stack of the things is my Xacto-aided save and purge sessions.) And, well, I got to the Silk soymilk two pack cardboard and got carried away with the handle and its potential. Instead of a gift box, I ended up with a clutch.

Front and back views.*

I used magnet tape for the closure.

This little bag is going to my Niece Momma, with these earrings inside.

*The stripes are actually photos of paintings. I cannot remember the artist's name. His work was featured in Breathe magazine about three years ago. That is all I can recall. A quick Google search only confirmed that these paintings are sharper and more compelling than any other stripe paintings I have seen. So if anyone out there recognizes the work, please let me know.

Love the purse.

I too have a magazine addiction.  My one xacto session with my magazines left me with 20 stitches and a nasty scar that resmbles a suicide attempt...Sad

Alas, my DH has never complained of my addiction since

Thanks for the compliments.

Ooh, TracyBSN, my only real razor knife incident put a hole in my jeans. No cuts, knock wood. And does BSN mean that you are a nurse? I hope you did not DIY the stitches.  Tongue

Yeah BSN stands for my degree in nursing... I'm so original when it comes to names...

I didn't DIY my stitches, but I should have They would have looked better...

you know how people draw scars with a straight line and cross marks?  that is truly my scar a 3.5 inch long cartoon scar.  At least it is on my wrist and not on my nose Smiley

What an excellent take on the CRAFT article!  I love the idea of functional items made from stuff that usually gets thrown away Smiley

Being somewhat of a freak for magazines myself, I definitely remember seeing that in Breathe (I miss Breathe it was such a great collage source) but don't remember who the artist was either.  The stripes look pretty swell on your clutch!

Thanks, gals. I am so glad someone else knows of Breathe. And I throw magnet tape at anything that isn't moving. (hmmm . . . maybe I should try somethings that are . . . here, kitty, kitty . . .)
