Thurs. Feb. 28th - Birthday Theme

Welcome back! I am sharing a quick little gift bag/purse with you today. I'm sad to say that this is my last post as a design team member for my cricut craft room. It's been so fun to be a part of this team.




My daughter's birthday is in April and I like to get a head start on her birthday gifts so I've been shopping since January for little things here and there. She's a crafter just like her Mom so I always try to include a few fun craft items for her. While out and about, I picked up a few dollar stamp sets for her and wanted something to put them in.

I found the perfect little purse from the Artiste cart on page 41 and I cut that out at 5". I used patterned CS from S.E.I. ~ Chocolat stack for the entire purse. I cut the little flap off the purse so I could use it as a gift bag.

I kept this real simple so she could use it for something else later on. I used a SU punch and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment on that punched piece and attached it to the little pocket on the front of the purse.

Here's what it looks like:

 
 
 
Then I put the stamp sets in and tied a ribbon around the handles to hold it together.
 
 


It was the perfect size to hold her mini stamp sets. I know she'll love it.



Thanks for stopping by.
