Plum Petal Pizazz Purse

Say that 10 times fast! I saw the idea to use the scalloped envelope die to make a little purse on SCS and knew I had to try one! Isn't it the cutest little thing?I demo-ed this little purse and then gave them away at my SAB/New Catalog party yesterday. You can fit 3 little note cards and envelopes inside, or better yet...a note and chocolate! I found these Russell Stover Triple Chocolate Mousse squares when I was looking for Ghiridelli squares...hadn't seen them before. They are really good! I had to be really good to make sure I had some left for my party yesterday! ;-)

I used Plum Prints paper and cut 2 Scallop Envelopes with the Big Shot. I cut down the bottom flap to 1" wide. The bottom flaps will be the bottom of the purse when you adhere the two flaps together. I cut a 1 x 11" piece of Perfect Plum card stock along with a 3/4" x 11 piece of DP for my handle. The handle will be the sides of the purse. Using sticky strip on the side flaps, you will just attach the envelopes to the 1" wide handle.

To embellish the little purse, I used the Petal Pizazz flower that can be punched out with the Scallop Circle punch, and stamped it in Perfect Plum. The center of the flower was cut using the Birds and Blooms Sizzlet along with a Filigree Brad to finish it off.

The matching note cards are cut 6x3 from Perfect Plum card stock. I used Pale Plum with the Polka Dot Texturz and a tag created using the Lots of Tags Sizzlets. I stamped them with the sentiments from the Fresh Cuts set. These fit in the Mini Square Envelopes.

I have lots more to show you from my party check back!
