Little Purse Gift Box

Purse_box_kristine_bd2sm_3 When I attended the Houston Regional, one demonstration was about making a purse like this.  I used the "Purse Boxes and Tags" kit so it is easy to just punch out the purse die cut and create!  I traced the flap of the purse onto a piece of the Petals and Paisley Designer Paper and cut out and used Glue Stick to adhere this designer paper to the flap.  I did a little stamping on my purse with Fresh Fillers and used some retired silver ribbon for the handle.  At the Regional demonstration, she used Versamark, Heat & Stick Powder and Silver Glitter to make the faux-metal decorations from the little die-cut circles on the purse sheet…but since I couldn’t find my new Silver Glitter, I used Versamark and Silver Embossing Powder to get a similar look.  I also did the clasp on the purse the same way and used a brad from the inside to close the purse and a Soft Subtle pink brad to attach the clasp.  Use a little Sticky Strip to adhere the purse and there you have a cute little gift box!  I put a hair bow in this one and sent it to my niece for her birthday.  I hope she enjoyed it!  These are fun and easy to make!
