Happy Gnome Day

I saw the most adorable little purse/gift card holder template the other day, so I thought I’d try it.  I thought it would be cute with the gnomes.  What do you think?

The pattern is copyright protected, so I can’t share it, but it would be fairly simple to make your own.  Just draw a double trapezoid that folds in the middle, and add an oval handle.  The sides on this one are a little more rounded than a trapezoid, but that would be easy to alter with your paper snips.  I covered the outside and both sides of the handle with designer series paper, then just added gnome cut outs.  The sentiment is a separate set called “Gnomenclature,” and it’s really cute.  There are four little sentiments.  My favorite is “Hangin’ with my gnomies.”
