Decemer Stamp Camp Part Two

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have the second project we made at my December Stamp Camp last Wednesday.  This project is a little 3x3 Monogram Fold Over Purse that holds three little 3"x3" notecards.  Check it out......
We created this fun little purse with Whisper White Cardstock and the Floral District DSP.
We also used the Notable Alphabet Stamp Set to stamp our monogram.
We wrapped a piece of Gumball Green Satin Stitched Ribbon around our box and added a tiny piece of Summer Starfruit Ribbon before we tied the knot.
The gals each created three little 3x3 note cards that tucked inside their purse.
There were two Gumball Green Notecards and one Summer Starfruit Notecard for each purse.
And each notecard was monogrammed and matted onto a scallop circle.
The gals even used a paper piercer to pierce holes into each of the scallops on their mongram cards.
The measurements for this little purse start with a 6"x10" piece of cardstock.  On the 6" side you score at 1" and 4-1/4".  On the 10" side you score at 1", 4-1/2", 5-1/2" and 9".  You remove the lower left and upper right hand square of your purse and then cut up to the score line of both the top and bottom portion of your purse.  We added sticky tape to close our purse up.  After we got our purse assemblied.....we added our DSP around the entire top portion of our box and a small piece was added to the bottom of our purse.
Here's a close-up of how the top of the purse folds over to creat a fun little layered fold to this purse.
And a close-up of the handle ...... Which was a 9"x1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock and we cut a piece of DSP at 9"x1/4" and adhered the two pieces together and then sticky taped the ends of the handles into the purse.
This is a FABULOUS GIFT and one that comes together SOOOOOO QUICKLY! The fun to this project is you can custom design it to coordinate for that someone special on your gift giving list and it can be created in their favorite color combination. 
 
Thanks for joining me today......I'm busy putting the finishing touches on my Christmas Gift for my SaddleBrooke Stamping Friends........Which I plan to deliver bright and early tomorrow morning.  I'll be back tomorrow to share the third gift that we made at my December Stamp Camp - Hope you can join me for that share........Keep Living Your Dream!
