Welcome to the Creation Station blog hop!  Today, we’re celebrating birthdays and featuring punch boards.  So whether you’re starting here or you’ve come from another blog, I’m sure you’ll find some inspiration to use the next time you’re creating for a birthday.

Just as you probably are, I’m on Pinterest.  And the last few days, my feed has been full of these cute Michael Kors bags.  I’ve kept scrolling back to look as I felt the tingle of inspiration.  But, I wasn’t sure whether I was thinking color or style.  As I began to create for today’s hop, it became a full fledged idea.

Gift Bag Punch Board Michael Kors style Purse from theartfulinker.com

I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to create a Michael Kors style purse from a piece of Tempting Turquoise.  Sooo simple!!  Instead of the usual “ML” emblem hanging from his purses, I used one of the flowers from Crazy About You to create a pendant/charm for my purse.

Since it’s for a birthday, it needs something inside.

The card measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.  The base is Tempting Turquoise and is stamped with the Crazy About You flower in Tempting Turquoise.

I’ve embellished with a piece of Tea Lace Doily that’s been accented with Gold Sequin Trim and a tassel made from Gold Bakers Twine.

The sentiment is also from Crazy About You with the words layered over a strip of Gold Foil paper.

Doesn’t this make a pretty presentation?

And, there’s plenty of room for a gift card or small gift.

Here’s a quick video so you can make your own.

Now it’s time to see what everyone else has to share.
