Well, maybe she doesn't have anything to worry about yet….But I like this little purse. It's not totally original. I saw a card someone made with the Top Note die and a circle top, and decided to make a little "box purse" with it. Wanna see?
The second one I make will be so simple, because now I have directions! It's a little like the Top Note box we made at the Big Shot class, but slightly altered. Here's how I made it.
I cut two Top Notes out of the Tea Party Designer Series Paper. Then I cut a circle with a 4 1/2" diameter from the Textured Pink Pirouette using the Circle Scissor Plus.
I scored the circle 1" from the center on both sides. This is optional, but I added a Pink Pirouette bottom to give it a little more stability. It's 3" x 4 1/2", scored on the 3" side at 1" on both sides. I trimmed 1/2" off the bottom of each Top Note, then attached the Pink Pirouette bottom to the inside of the Top Notes, trimming as needed. (Whew. A lot easier to do than explain.)
Here's a picture of the inside. You can see the "gusset" at the bottom.
The box inside is 6" x 5 1/2" card stock. The 8" side is scored at 3 1/2" and 4 1/2". The short sides are scored at 1" . Clip the little score lines up to the long lines and assemble the box. I used Sticky Strip.
The purse flap is stamped with "Doodle This" in Pink Pirouette, then "Happy Mother's Day" from All Holidays in Regal Rose. I added a flower brad with velcro behind it. The ribbon is threaded through some Jumbo Eyelets.
Attach the box to the inside of the purse with Sticky Strip. I only attached the bottom; the sides are "free" so it's easier to fill and retrieve the gift.
Now, fill the box with something fun for Mom!

Stamp Sets: All Holidays, Doodle This
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose
Paper: Tea Party DSP, Pink Pirouette card stock (plain and textured)

Here's one of the projects we'll be doing this week at clubs/workshops. It uses the Pretties Kit flower.
I dyed the flower with markers and an aqua painter. The little dots at the bottom of the card are 1/4" circles cut from vellum card stock. I attached them to the card with mini glue dots, then added Crystal Effects and Glitter.
