Hostess Gift/Purse

I have seen these purses online a lot lately. Aren't they just the cutest thing? I decided that I was going to make a little one to hold 3 x 3 cards. I went through a phase where I bought A LOT of 3 x 3 envelopes and it's time to actually use them now. LOL I am a great buyer/hoarder. Shhhhhh! Don't tell...
Anyway, I love when I make up my mind to do these things. First things first, A PATTERN--oh boy (EEK!). Okay after a little wasted cardstock, I managed to make the inside pockets for the cards and envelopes. :) I made a handful of simple little cards to match. (so fun!)

It took me a little bit to figure out exactly what I was doing, but it is finished! :)

I'm pretty happy with the results and it will make a great Hostess Gift Tuesday night. I hope she likes it! :) BUT before I give it away, I'm going to make sure to write down ALL the measurements! WHEW!

Stamps: Kind & Caring Thoughts, Greenhouse Garden, Thank you Kindly, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Ink: Basic Black, Only Orange, Pink Passion
Cardstock: Only Orange, Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories: Twine, Playground Button, Black Grosgrain, Gold Brads, Sticky Strip, Dimensionals, Word Window and Corner Rounder Punches, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer (brads)
