Handbag with Vintage Postcards - Meg's Garden

Hi everyone,
Vintage Challenge at Meg's Garden is on
you still have time to enter,
all the details are HERE
some fabulous prizes to win.........but 
Today I have a project which I have created for my 
Meg's Garden Design Team work for this month, 
it is a Handbag
and inside the bag are 
4 Vintage Ladies Postcards.

Using the new papers from Meg's Garden 
Designed by Denise -

The Bag.

I covered the outside of the bag with 
Adhered some German Scrap border
with glue around the bottom edges of the bag.

I attached a Brass Latch and hook - Scalloped 
for the closure of the bag
(there are so many to choose from
Meg's Garden website) also I
attached a Striped satin Ribbon - Brown and latte colour
 for a handle.

I also created 4 postcards, 
which fit quite nicely inside the bag.

The size of these postcards are 9cm x 11cm
Smaller than a normal sized card and a bit
larger than an Artist trading card.
You could place these on top of card, if you like!  :)
