Faux Alligator Matchbox Clutch

This is another great idea from our Demonstrator's SU site, this was provided by Francine Yee, Kaneohe, HI ~ Inspired by Gretchen Barron.

It's a little Faux Alligator Matchbox Purse. You use the Matchbox Bigz XL die (I used Red CS and the little Brown Flower Brad. I used the Corner Rounder on the cornders of the flap. A piece of Red Grosgrain Ribbon (8") for the little strap.

The Faux look is accomplished by using VersaMark Pad and Clear Embossing Powder. Use your Bone Folder to make design, shake off the excess and heat the powder, doesn't it look like real Alligator Skin? (Well, except for the color!) LOL!!

It was a fun little project and come out really cute. Thanks for looking.
