Who wouldn't love to receive this cute card and matching petite purse? Include a little bit of chocolate and you've got a winning combination! Next week is Stylist Appreciation Week - a great time to say thanks to your favorite hair stylist. It's also Administrative Professionals Day on Wednesday, although in some areas it kicks off on Monday for a week long show of appreciation for the hard work these men and women do all year long.
The Bright Blossoms stamp set (a new catalog sneak peek) is fun and funky, but can also serve a more traditional role as well. That's great versatility at work - lots of looks from one little set. I stamped the vase to match the sweet pattern of the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper. The tiny Twitterpated Designer Buttons make darling "flowers" with a snippet of Baker's Twine through the center.
The little purse is so EASY to make thanks to the new Petite Purse Bigz Die (another sneak peek). The die does all the work: cutting and scoring for you. It assembles in a snap with just two little pieces of Sticky Strip. For a cute scallop edge I used the Scallop Oval Punch - it's size is perfect.
Warning: Making these little purses is addicting. Once you get started, all sorts of fun ideas start popping in your head and pretty soon you'll be ready to open a petite purse boutique! Seriously, this darling petite purse is the perfect size for favors. Think birthday parties, showers, luncheons ... the list goes on. Oh! And don't forget to make MOM one for Mother's Day.
I wrapped two chocolate nugget bars with patterned paper and topped them with a mini flower punched using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and added a tiny Basic Rhinestone in the center. The purse will hold 3-4 nuggets or the candy of your choice or any small gift or treasure you'd like to tuck inside.
So whatcha think?? That little purse is KUH-UTE!! Right?
