Origami Boat!

Papertrey Ink is one of my favorite stamp companies. This month they are celebrating their 3rd anniversary, and hosting some fantastic challenges! Today's challenge: create a project spotlighting origami! I modified the Perfect Matchbox template and made this cute little boat for the top. I can give this as a valentine to one of my boys without being accused of making it girly!

All papers used are from Stampin Up.

Messenger Bag

I am crafty. This statement sums it up.

My new messenger bag.

Nice large back pocket, twin front pockets, top zipper closure, and inside, a little hidden zipper pocket. I love it!
It can easily hold 12x12 scrapbook pages to take to a crop night.

I had a lot of help from this tutorial, but changed the dimensions to fit what I needed.
Outer dimensions are 15 1/2" wide, 13" tall and 3" wide.
