Card tote

Today I've got something different to show you.

While surfing the web the other day a came across a tutorial for a card tote. You can find Maria Bell's tutorial here.

I made it out of 5 sheets of 12x12 paper
3 x dark pink
2 x light pink

I've also added some buttons and flowers to finish.

This tote is easy to make..I will say the next one I make I'll add the inside folders before adding the side panels as I found it a bit fiddly to add them after the side panels were glued in.Also I need to get some white velcro.

I would like to enter this tote into the folllowing challenges.
