This was a quick fun project, I used my Quickutz Silhouette to make the little purse from a box that came with the software. I cut a second box in black so I had spare parts to decorate with. I also used the Scor-Pal to add scored stripes to the body of the purse. After attaching the black panel under the purse flap I added the punched flowers and brads. The handle is stitched black gross grain ribbon threaded through holes in the flaps that really belong on the inside of the box secured with Scor tape. This little purse measures 3 x 4 1/4 inches.

I made this for my daughter to give to her friend so she needed a card to go with it. Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge 267 intrigued me, I had to try it. It was definitely a challenge making it so small! I had several ideas for stamps but everything was too big so I used an EK Success flower punch and a new stamp from a set I bought at CHA by Clear Magic Stamps. The card stock is a combination of PTI Hibiscus Burst and SU Pretty In Pink.

The verse stamp she chose for the inside didn't look like it was going to fit, the wood block was exactly the same width as the white panel inside. Perfect! We tucked the card and a little package of Sweet Tarts from our Valentine candy inside and it's ready to go.

Here's a better picture of the score lines on the body of our "purse".
