New Springtime Impressions Thinlits & A Super Sturdy Tote Bag with Reinforced Handles

As soon as I saw the Springtime Impressions Thinlits, I knew exactly the project I had in mind to showcase them.

A few months ago I designed a gorgeous tote bag with strong reinforced circular handles.   I also had a design for a scaled down version with oval handles.  The dimensions and proportions of my scaled down tote were perfect for showcasing these beautiful and intricate dies.

I used the new Garden Impressions DSP 6 x 6 pack, and the decorative paper I chose for this project in shades of pink was very pretty and feminine and just ideal for this very "girly" gift bag.

My original design with the circular reinforced handles was made from DSP.  This one is super sturdy as it is made from card stock and decorated with DSP.

Both the papers and the thinlits used here will be available to order from 1 June

Well, I hope you like today's little offering and maybe feel inspired to make one..  Below is my video tutorial providing step by step instructions on how to put one together:-

Thanks for looking, and I would love you to pop back.
