Hello, my crafty friends! Happy Hump Day – hope you’re having a great week so far! A new challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #21 – April Anything Christmas Goes! You know how I love fun folds, and several months back I found a new one to try in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter HERE. What a fun idea!
I chose plain ivory for the purse base, red and green cardstock for the flap and ornament embellishment, and traditional red and green double-sided Christmas papers for the inside pockets. The closure is a velcro circle and the handle is ivory diamond satin ribbon.
I tucked a card with a traditional Christmas sentiment into the pocket on the front side.
The card in the pocket on the back side has a place for a signature. This is so stinkin’ cute, and the sky is the limit with regard to colors, papers and occasions for gifting this little purse! You could also tuck in a gift card or cash! ;)
