Faux Leather handbag

My craft club's full day meeting includes a small project. This month, I decided to demo how to create your own faux leather mini handbag! We used WS Design's handbag template & SU's Chocolate Chip cardstock.

The faux leather look is achieved quite easily - simply cover your cardstock (once cut) with VersaMark, then cover the whole surface with clear embossing powder. Before heating, using a scoring tool, draw lines randomly over the surface, taking care to only remove the unheated powder from where you're drawing. Once you're happy with your pattern, heat with a heat tool until all the powder has melted & voila - faux leather! Embellish to suit!
