Handbag Mirrored Compact
I made this mirrored handbag compact on Wednesday to give to my friend I have been with today to say thank you for all her kindnesses to me. I have made another design as another thank you present but I posted it yesterday so I will wait until it is received before I upload it. I bought the mirrors and the lace tape from Hobbycraft a couple of weeks ago, the 'Love' is a brad painted in Viva Precious Metal Gold from Paper Artsy (how did I ever live without this paint!), and the papers and stamps are all from Crafty Individuals. I used Crackle Accents on the Stampbord, and I spent the whole afternoon wondering if it was crackling, and arguing with my friend about it!
I will blog again this evening as I am just waiting for some glue to dry at the mo, and for some crackle to crack!
