Box In a Bag Purse

I saw this tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and just had to make it for my upcoming craft fair. The little purse holds eight 3 x 3 note cards and envelopes.  I might have to make a few of these. They make great teacher gifts – teachers always need “thank you” cards!! I used the Elegant Soiree DSP and coordinating colors.  So cute!!

I haven’t done a video in years. Frankly, because I suck at it and I hate my voice. But, I’ve gotten so many requests for how I did my business card holder, I thought I would give it a try. They work up incredibly fast and I think I will sell them at my upcoming craft fair.

Here is the list of supplies:

Sizzix Box #2

1 1/2″ circle punch – use for Whisper White circle

1 3/8″ circle punch – use for Pacific Point circle

Small scallop circle – use for Real Red piece

DSP Celebrations – strip around box measures 10 1/2 x 1 5/8″ (does not have to be exact on 1 5/8″ cut so your pattern looks good)

DSP Celebrations for back of box – 3 1/4 wide  x 3 3/8 tall

Real Red for back of box – 3 1/2 x 3 1/2

Pacific Point 1 1/4 x 3 5/8 for inside bottom piece

Corner rounder punch

Real Red 5/8″ grossgrain ribbon

Glue dots

Stamp set: Hello Again

Ink: Real Red – verse, Pear Pizzaz for butterfly

Well, wish it really was May!!!  Here is the second panel for the upcoming Shadowbox Club class on April 6th.  This class is full!

I know one of the squares is crooked. My card is broken for my camera so I had to load it into the internal memory of the camera and it’s a pain to do.  I didn’t notice it until I looked at it on the computer. Oh well!  I’ll fix it for the directions!

Don’t you love the owl!!!

Back from Regionals!!

Had a GREAT time at the Hartford Regional Seminar today!!!!  My whole team came as well as some great stampin’ friends!!  It was a fun filled day of stamping, chatting and good times with good friends.  I also did a Workshop Wow presentation in front of everyone.  I demonstrated this cute little business card holder using the Sizzix box #2 die.  It’s great to put on your desk or stick on a bulletin board at your gym.  You can change them out with the seasons.  I was so afraid that lots of the demos already knew the trick, but so many of them didn’t!!   Isn’t it cute!  Love the owl punch!!
