February Artful Bag Challenge

Artful Bag Challenge
The objective for this month is to take an object that is not a
bag or purse and make it into one.
The object that I chose is a chinese to-go container. I wrapped it in scrapbooking paper that had a whimsicle touch with the glitter. A purple ribbon for the strap and to create a lock where the purse would open I added a button cover. I kept my purse simple as I would see it being used as a clutch for a fancy night out on the town.

Linda that is the cutest to go container I've ever seen! I love the purple and gold paper you used to cover it and little heart clasp is perfect. Love it :) I just found a new free linky tool so I went ahead and added your link. Thanks for sharing and playing again.

Dear Linda,
THAT CHINESE TO GO CONTAINER WAS CHANGED BY THE ARTIST HANDS INTO AN ADORABLE, PRETTY PURSE...I WOULD CARRY IT TO A COMMUNITY PLAY, WHERE IT IS CASUAL/DRESSY.
BOY YOU ARE ON THE BALL...I HAVEN'T EVEN HAD A CHANCE TO SEE WHAT OUR PROJECT WAS THIS MONTH...I MAY GET A GLITTERY DUSTING FROM FROSTED PETUNIA.
HAVE A SUGAR SWEET DAY.
HUGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE

What a lovely bag - and fabulous idea. Now, of course, I have to make a joke and say that it's the perfect purse to take to a restaurant to hold your leftovers! LOL. Beautiful colors and clasp. This is lovely!

Just got mine posted up so now I get to look at everyone elses. Yours is my first and it's so pretty. Some high class takeout you got there! I especially love that button cover, Linda. It's so pretty in and of itself!

Faith, trust, and faerie dust!

How much fun - can you imagine if all to-go containers were this pretty we'd never eat take out - lol... what a beautiful purse...

I am out visiting all the purses since I decided to take the plunge and join in the fun!
