Gift Card Purse

Hi ladies, hope you had a wonderful day! I will have more photos up today, but i hope to have an idea for you if you need a last minute gift for one of your friends.

The other day i was at Starbucks and thought about my friend, who’s really busy getting her stuff done before the holidays and i know she loves Starbucks. Who can not use a little boost while shopping and staying in line :-)

So here is my little card purse – i used Lili of the Valley’s cute teddy “Jenny bear – all shopped outwith it.


Now, as you know there are different ways to keep things like this closed.. Velcro or the tiny magnets. I did no have any magnets and i do not really like the look of Velcro. My flap holds shut with the rather stiff felt ribbon, i placed just so it would overlap the circle a little bit.


simple inside… i could have decorated here even more… at some point i wanted to add some scallops to the opening. I just ran out of crafting time :-)


Alright.. here is an other shot :-) DT will keep showing images with the very new January 2011 stamp release and i can tell you… they are SUUUUPER cute. You will love them 20!!! new stamps!


Papers: Stampin up Design Paper
Other: Spellbinders dies, Stampin up Top Note die
Sentiments: Magnolia (inside) and Whimsy Postmark stamp.
How to make the purse, can be found here, i extended the size to i believe 8 inches so i would be able to use a bigger focal point image.
