Going round in Circles

When I saw that the challenge at My Time To Craft for this week was entitled 'Going round in circles' I thought of a video I'd seen on You Tube, where someone made a bag from two circles.
 So this is my version!
I cut 2 circles from double sided card and then trimmed off the bottom of both circles to make the base of the  bag. Placing the sides together, I cut out the handles with a slim oval Nestie. The inner part of the bag should have been made with a paper bag, but as I didn't have one, I made one but it took me longer to make that than the rest of the bag. 
Decorated with a strip of card and a paper flower made from a variety of scallops and flower shapes finishes it off. A length of ribbon secures the handles together.
I like doing this kind of thing, but I don't always find a use for them.

  9. Hi Chrissie
    This is gorgeous ...so easy when you know how ...but it looks gorgeous....
    sylvie ...lov in your new Blog never thought i would do simple .....Sorry dont think i thanked you for putting the other card on for me ....

  10. Now Chrissie - had you made this last week and used a Funky Hand DP, this would have qualified for the 'Get Funky' challenge which ran from the 15th Jan to 14th Feb... exactly the same challenge... I really love it and those nestie flowers are always so fab.

    Any girly girl would love to receive this kind of card - so think about your choir friends who may have daughters, nieces or grandaughters. I'm sure it would be a massive hit!!!
