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!
