Thank you for a teacher purse

This is the second purse i've made this month and i guess i am on a role...i love this purse as a gift for anyone, but i made it purposefully for the Tiddly Ink's challenge- "Thank you, Teacher".





What i did:
I made a "backpack" diecut from Sesame Street Season's cartridge.  I hid the slits for the backpack straps and hole punched the top for a ribbon handle instead. I also hid the actual straps so they wouldn't be cut out.  I also made a "crayon" box miniature size (used Tags, Bags Boxes and More cartridge) for inside of the purse for a greeting.  And as you can see there is plenty of room for someone's favorite candy or treat...for a "Sweet teacher".  I color and cut out the Minnie image from Tiddly Inks and added some glossy accents to her glasses.  Stitched on some rick-rack and button.  This was a fun project!

Copics used:
Skin- E50, 51
Behind glasses- E41
Hair- E33, 37, 29
Dress & Flowers- YG01,03, B24, RV23
