Today we are sharing a beautiful decorated handbag photo frame by Samantha.
Products used are available on Personal Impressions Website.
Studio Light Shabby Chic Paper Pad.
Viva Décor Paper Flowers (50)
Papier Mache Purse Bag with Photo.
Viva Décor Chalky Vintage Paint.
Firework- Shimmer ink spray, Desert Sand.
Distress inks-  for colouring the flowers, Peeled Paint, Victoria Velvet, Stormy Sky, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.
Decopatch Glue
(Thick wire, lace, pearls in string trim, stamens for flowers from stash)
Step 1
Paint Bag inside and out with Viva Décor Chalky Paint, leave to dry.
To make the handle stand up, threaded a thick gauge wire up through the beads. (personal preferance)

Step 2
Use one Distress ink at a time, onto a mat, spritz with water and wipe spritzed water flower through the ink and leave to dry.
Spray Firework shimmer spray to the flowers. Leave to dry.
Step 3
Layer 2 flowers together, push 3 stamens through the centre and swash the flowers between your fingers to bring them to life.
They really look like fabric flowers.
Step 4
Cover the bag with the Studio Light papers. Using a different one on each side. The front and back is larger than the papers so a join is needed.
Decopatch glue the papers to the bag.
Step 5
Wet glue the lace and pearls to the top and bottom of the bag.
 Step 6
Group 3 flowers together, and glue the flowers top and bottom of the oval photo area.
Doesn't this look fabulous!
