This month we will be sharing four more samples using our Glamorous Gift Tote tutorial. We first featured this back in May of 2009 and have been ready to show you more ways to use this versatile tote. You can make it for ANY occasion or holiday. We believe you will be quite surprised at how different each sample will be this month.
Today's tote is seasonal - fall. It doesn't matter if this is for a birthday, thank you gift, or National Boss Day (October 16th), this tote will be the perfect way to present your gift.
The supplies used to create this tote are:
- Card stock - Early Espresso, More Mustard
- Specialty DSP - Autumn Spice from the Holiday Mini catalog
- Other - old vintage brown buttons, braided handles
The front and back of this tote are made with the Autumn Spice DSP and the sides are cut from Early Espresso. Since the paper doesn't need much embellishing, we kept it simple. We added brown vintage buttons found at an estate sale. The handles are actually from a child's braided leather belt. We cut the belt in half to form our to handles. The original pattern comes with a pattern for paper handles but as you can see, it is so much fun to find other things to use.
You can see our original gift tote post and samples here.

Be sure to check back next Tuesday as you won't believe how different the next tote will be. Have a great week! Melissa and Gayla
