It's a perfect size to hold 4 cards and envelopes (4 1/2 x 5 1/2 sized) and is fast and easy......... You can even size it down to be smaller and make different sizes that are perfect for candy, gift cards and other small treats.........
This one was made using Stampin' Up designer paper which has unfortunately been discontinued to the dismay of our little club group. It was one of our favorites! I added some white lace that I gave an antique look to using shimmer sprays and topped it with satin ribbon, a dimensional paper flower and cute little blue flower brads.
Once I started with these, I couldn't stop.... This one was more elegant using a beautiful textured, glittery cardstock and mirror cardstock for the closure and the clasp. Used my handy dandy Spellbinder's scalloped oval dies to make the closure and some stick on half beads.
This one was the little teeny size just right for a gift card or a few pieces of candy. I made bunches of them for my Stampin' Up party as a hostess gift for my guests. Of course, I hate to make the same thing over and over so they all had to be different.
The larger purse started out as a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock and was scored at 2 3/4 on one side and 2 3/4 in on the opposite side. The other two sides were scored in at 4 1/2 and 4 1/2.
The smaller started as 6 x 6 and was scored at 2 1/2 and 2 1/2 on opposite sides and the other two sides were 1 1/2 x 1 1/2.
