I found this quote when I was looking for a friendship quote to design a cross stitch and found this one which I thought was lovely. The card used for the pink bras was able to be shaped so the bras look more realistic but the blue card was too thick.

Here are the instructions for folding the purses. Please just use them for your own use as the instruction sheets are copyright to me. I hope they will show up a decent size when you click on them
I was watching television the other night and someone was wearing a paper hat. When I saw them I remembered that I used to fold them, boats and handbags when I was little. In fact we used to fold really big ones and use them as clutch bags when dressing up.
That night I found some pretty paper and decided to fold some for putting on cards and these are the results. I haven't added a sentiment yet as I don't know what they are going to be.

I was clearing out my cupboard today and came upon this embroidery. I had forgotten all about it and I think I must have done it when I was still at school or just after leaving (1972 or 1973). I designed it myself and was going to make it into a shoulder bag and do vaguely remember embroidering a long strap but it is missing. There are lots of different embroidery stitches, most of which I have forgotten. The centre is a mass of French knots and beads.
I don't think it looks too bad really....

with backgrounds for my teabag tiles
and this is the first ones I came up with. The St Patrick's Day card was done for a challenge on Circle of Crafters forum and the other was just made for fun. The fold on the left card is just the simple triangular fold and the one on the right is called Heather's Matches fold which is a lot of fun to do.
