See Ya Later Faux Alligator!

Don't these look real! These are the cutiest little wristlets and so easy to make and do. Use them for upcoming teachers appreciation, bridal showers, gifts, fill them with gift cards or of course chocolate!
I have updated this post as many have emailed me to repost the purse instruction, as the flap
of the purse is a tad different from my post March 9th, so here is a photo of the purse again with
the change in the lid. Credit where credit due!: The Faux Alligator technique can be found here at .
You will cut out all your pieces and score them. This will require you to own a Big Shot. You will use the Top Note Die and cut three of them out. Follow the directions above to see how to score and cut them. Again you can refer to my March 9th Purse instructions to finish the rest. If you do not have a Big Shot let me know! I can order one for you!
Now, when you do the faux technique you will need to emboss all three top note pieces by first
stamping them up with versamark and then adding clear embossing powder. Take your bone
folder to create the lines BEFORE you emboss it. Shake off excess and the emboss. Wala, faux
technique. Have fun with these! x0x0
