Petite Purse

I made these cute little petite purses using the Stampin' Up! Petite Purse die. It is so easy, comes out in one complete piece except the handle which with a couple of glue dots and you are done. All you have to do is fold the score lines and just apply some adhesive. It is completely up to you how much you embellish it.

I think these would be lovely made for a little girls party, or wedding ring holder and used at a wedding instead of place cards for the ladies. The ideas are endless to your imagination! 

This one would be perfect at a wedding - I have used the new "Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Paper" - Item Number to purchase is 138635.
