Let’s Celebrate your Day Detailed Floral Thinlits dies paper purse and card

My project this week is inspired from the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum and Tip Top Taupe and Bibi Cameron’s paper purse tutorial.  Bibi has a pdf tutorial and video on how to make this beautiful paper purse.   I love how the  Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies create die-cut floral designs and edges for cards, envelopes or boxes.  The purse and card set I created will make a beautiful gift for a friend or mother’s day.

It’s in the bag

For this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments – Anything but a Card challenge I decided to recreate a purse I saw online.  The purse I saw on Purse Boutique is so cute!  So I thought this purse out of paper would be perfect for a small gift or gift card.  I cut the purse out of Basic Black card stock then ran it through my Big Shot with the Weave Texture plate.  I made the handles out  of braided grosgrain and added the spiral flower to the front.  Easy!  Here’s my inspiration and below it my creation.  I’ll post the template information in the next few days.
