Paper Purse

A dear friend of mine recently had surgery on her shoulder...a "fun" surgery that will ultimately take her almost a year to recover from...She is also my faithful stamping buddy so since she is going to be out of commission for awhile, I decided to have her over for a special pre-surgery stamping night a few weeks ago where we would create something other than a card.
I found this great project via a link on Splitcoast Stampers. This template is from Andrea Walford's site and you can find it and the directions here. You might just want to make this cute purse yourself! And Andrea is a very talented stamper so have a look at here beautiful creations while you're there!
The project was really easy and super cute when finished. And guess what is really fun? A standard size card, 4.25" x 5.5" fits perfectly inside! What a great way to give a stationary gift! My friend immediately filled her purse with cards and gave them to one of her friends as a birthday gift. Nothing makes a stamper happier than giving hand stamped gifts or seeing someone I stamp with give them...ahhh, it does a heart good! :-)
All of the supplies used in my project is from Stampin' Up! The paper, which is just beautiful, is from their newest release of holiday doubled sided paper. Love it!
Enjoy and why not try this project out this week...You'll love the results!
