Haute Couture for Mums

Well, not quite Haute Couture, but the papercraft equivalent, LOL! For my Mother's Day craft class this year I couldn't resist making a gorgeous Haute Tote bag from "creations by AR". I used classic colours Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla and papers from Bella Bleu for accent.

Here's the tote:

And of course there must be a card to go with it. As I'm loving Corie's puffy flowers, I wanted to incorporate one of those, so I cased the layout from one of Corie's own cards and just simplified it to match the clean lines of the tote.

Here's the card:

And here are the two together. Aren't they divine? When I showed samples to my ladies, I got such an amazing response! I haven't had so many people book in to one class in ages! There are going to be some very lucky mums out there this year, LOL!

The class is full already, but if you have a group of friends who would like to make this project, get in touch as I may be able to bring the class to you!
