Christmas Purse Box
I have wanted to make on of these for such a long time and finally got around to doing it as a class. I just love this design. It makes a really cute gift wrap option or use it to put some special photos in as a display.
Now these really are very simple to make and it is then up to you as to how much you decorate them. For some reason the open picture is importing on its side so imagine it being up the right way. I have spend so much time navigating computer problems lately I am just going to accept that this is how it is on this one.
The colours are Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla. The patterned paper is Jolly Holiday and the ribbon is Old Olive. The stamp set used was Delightful Decoratons and the Merry Christmas is from Many Merry Messages.We did some embossing with the Silver Embossing Powder and used the Ornament Punch along with the large and retired small Star Punches.
I am hoping to make a few more of these before Christmas as they are a great quirky packaging idea. Hopefully a few that attended the class will make some more also (I'm giggling).
To relax everyone after making the Christmas Purse we did a few very simple gift tags using the Level 3 Hostess Set, Playful Pieces. This is such a versatile set and these have been copied from the Catalogue. If ever there was a reason to host a workshop, this set is it. There are SO many wonderful things you can create from this set it is incredible!
