When I saw this post on Cooking with Cricut, I knew I had to make one! I have purse files downloaded from different sites on the web; I have the Forever Young cartridge, which has a purse feature; AND I got Tags, Bags, Boxes and More as a free download when I got my Gypsy, yet I have never made a purse! And this cute purse had 3 x 3 note cards inside, and you know how I love those . . .
This is how mine turned out. The whole project used only two pieces of paper and some scraps! The dark pink card bases are from one piece of Stampin’ Up paper. I used one paper for the purse itself. After I cut it out, I used the leftovers from that piece to make the matching squares on the front of the cards. The patterned paper is from K & Company. It’s just called Specialty Paper and has lots of pretty pinks and reds for Valentine’s Day. I got it on sale at Michaels. The light pink mats came from my scrap pile. I think it’s Stampin’ Up, too. I made six cards to put inside the purse.
They needed a little “something” so I put a heart brad from Creative Imaginations on each card. I cut up some magnet business card that I got off our refrigerator and taped that to the purse for a closure.
I think it came out adorable and it was so much fun to make. I raffled this off at my school.
