Two wonderful Blog Awards, Also trying to get my head round how to use a Template

LOL do I win longest blog title ???  hmmm do I?

my first award is from a wonderful and talented lady who called Gill who goes under the name of Drumcloggirl on the Do craft forum she has a marvalous blog which is well worth a look at

So here is the award I got off Gill Thank you so much Gill
This little award comes with several rules I must name three things I would never do ...

1.   I would never give up  my usual gallon of tea a day I love tea, normal tea, posh tea with milk no sugar...bliss
2.  I would never be a minimalist, I love so many things and like to surround myself with them
3   I would never knowingly damage someone's self confidence

Now the the next rule of this award is that I must pass it on to three other wonderful blogs

I would love to give this award to

Suzie Boo

Now today I am trying to work out how to use a new template I got off my husband off a handbag I will take photo of the template to show you Now my first thought was get a piece of 12 x 12 paper fold in two cut out on fold so that it forms handbag bottom

Wonderful handbag template

so I got a piece of 12 x 12 inch paper to try it and the handbag wont fit so guess I need to use  2 pieces of A4 and join at the bottom or 2 pieces of 12 x12 I wonder if anyone has this template and have they made a card from it, also would they like to share any tips on the how to I will set to working it out shortly

I say I will set to it shortly but the time it takes me will be longly is that even a word lol

Watch this space for maybe a handbag or maybe a mess

Thanks again to Gill and Debbi for my wonderful awards it certainly is turning out to be a marvelous month for me

Hi I'm Maria... said...

congratulations on both your awards alma, both well deserved, well done...

as for the handbag template, would it fit if you folded the 12x12 paper across into a triangle?

and thank you for my award, I will have to put my thinking cap on...
