In April, I ordered the Petite Purse die during the “Sneak Peek” month Stampin’ Up!® offered. It’s cute, but, seriously, how many petite purses do you need – especially when you’re around boys all the time? So I’ve been playing with it to see what other things I can make.
This is a little treat basket we’ll be making at club next week. It uses the Petite Purse die and the Stripes embossing folder, both made by Sizzix® for Stampin’ Up!®. After I die cut the purse from River Rock card stock, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Stripes folder, then turned it 90° and ran it through again. I sponged with a little Soft Suede to bring out the weave.
To make the basket, you turn the purse upside down. I added the handle with vintage trinkets brads, then glued a little fabric on it to dress it up a little. I love the Floral District designer fabric, don’t you? I made a ribbon from a coordinating design – also in the Floral District designer fabric set – to close the bag full of “Harvest Mix” candy. (It’s candy corn with a few candy pumpkins thrown in. Yum!!) Isn’t it cute? I think it will be a fun project to make, and it’s really easy and quick. It would be perfect for table favors at Thanksgiving dinner or at a party. If I get really ambitious, maybe I’ll make a bunch for Thanksgiving. I have over two months, so I should be able to get them done!
I have another cute idea using the Petite Purse die, but I’m saving that for next week’s blog hop. Be sure to check in!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
