I have been going back and forth for months trying to decide whether I should buy SU's Petite Purse Die. Then while checking out some pictures on the web from Leadership I saw an example of the petite purse but for a nurse! I just fell in love with it and ordered the die right away. I thought what a great Valentine goodie for my daughter to take to the hospital for the nurses in her department!
Paper - Whisper White, Real Red - SU
Stamps - Teeny Tiny Wishes, It's a Wrap Holidays - SU
Accessories - Petite Purse Die, Glue Dots, Score Tape
Punches - 3/4" Circle, Word Window and Itty Bitty Shapers Punch Pack
Embellisments - Twine
I can't say enough about this die. It was so easy to use and it cut the paper like butter. I cut my 8 1/2" x 11" paper in half on the 11" side which enabled me to make two purses out of one sheet of CS. I used my score tape on the two sides and the purse was together! Since I was making alot of them, I used my mini glue dots to put the handles on instead of using brads. I stamped my sentiment and tied it on the handle with my twine. The example that I saw on the web used a large red cross sign, but my friend Denise let me use her cross punch from the punch pack which I mounted on a 3/4" circle of whisper white paper. I used the Valentine holiday stamp on Avery labels and put them around Nugget Bars to add to the goodies. I put two nugget bars in each purse and there is still room for more which surprised me. I just loved how these purses came together. I will definitely be making more of these for different occasions.
Well, it is still very cold and windy here. I am definitely ready for spring! Have a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping bye,
