Petite Purses for July Open House

Finally!  I have some petite purses to share with you.  The purses are quite simple to do – 1 piece of 5 1/2 – 6” x 8” card stock or designer series paper that after the die cut, requires 7 folds and 2 small pieces of sticky strip.  You can create purses that take more time by adding embellishments.  The die is available on page 194 of the Stampin’ Up Catalogue.  These little purses are perfect favors for showers.  They will also hold birthday cash, a pair of earrings, or other small gift.  Here are some of my samples:

PursesThe 2 purses to the back were very simple.  A close up of the purse to the left is shown in the next picture.  The purse on the right features rhinestones on the flap and across the bottom.  The center black and white purse is my favorite!  I used designer series paper for the purse, and added black card stock to the flap that I had embossed with the new Fancy Fan Folder (P. 189).  Black card stock was punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border (P. 183) to provide trim for the bottom of the purse.  A single pearl accents the flap.

Purses 2The purses to the back were made with designer series paper that included.  I simply added the trim to give these two projects a bit of interest.  I simply added a large pearl to the rose on the flap of the front purse. 




These and other petite purses will be on display at my July 13th and 14th Open House.  You will have the opportunity to make your own purse and embellish it however you choose.  I will have plenty of paper to choose from as well as scissors, sticky strip, punches, pearls, rhinestones, embossing folders, etc.  You can also pick up your coupons for the remainder of the year, and grab your new catalogue if you don’t already have it.  Light refreshments will also be available.  Give me a call if you have any questions – 630/759-3089.

Open House – July 13th from 3 to 9 PM & July 14th from 9 AM to 4 PM

Mostly Male Stamp Camp – August 3rd from 4 to 9 PM & August 4th from 9 AM to 4 PM.  Cards for this upcoming stamp camp will start previewing in my next post.  Blessings, Rosemary – 630-759-3089
