Hello! I am Holly Sanford, the owner/designer of Fiorella Designs. I create one-of-a-kind purses made from cigar boxes. Every purse I design is so personal to me, and is very hard for me to part with! I focus on themes that will allow women to express themselves. My favorite purses have a wine-tasting theme, where I incorporate materials like cork, distressed papers, and wine labels.

I am fortunate to have a great workspace in my home where I can just leave everything out as I work on a project. My paper cutter is my most valuable tool, and my huge collection of papers are my main materials. For any given purse, I may be cutting out words from a magazine, gluing accents, or beading handles. There are many steps involved in transforming a used cigar box into a finished purse. Finding the most unique cigar boxes is the first step. They have so much character and are already beautiful on their own. From decoupaging the papers on, to finishing with a tassel and coordinating interior, there are many hours that go into the process.

My background includes sewing wedding dresses, interior design, and scrap booking. My varied interests really come together in helping me design my purses. I am so passionate about what I do! There is no greater reward than to have a woman tell me she loves one of my design.
