I first posted this in November 2011, but I think these little purse giftcard holders are so fabulous they deserve another sharing!
I’m not even listing supplies, since everything except the Bring on the Cake stamp set I used has been retired or are generic craft store supplies. I’m sure you have things in your stash that you can substitute, or please feel free to use this as an excuse to buy new supplies!
To make this, simply fold a 6” x 6” piece of double-sided patterned paper in half and cut a little off each side to make it look like a purse . The fold is at the bottom. I used my Big Shot and the Top Note die to cut the “flap” but any symmetrical piece would work. Fold that in half, adhere your ribbon/handle at the bottom of the fold, and adhere to the back piece of your purse. I cut a Stampin’ Up medium clear bag in half for the gift card and adhered all 4 sides of it for strength. To keep the purse closed, use a Velcro dot.
These are super cute for girls’ night or any girly gift giving occasion (and there are so many of those!) and come together really quickly. I usually try to have a few ready to go, except for the sentiment, in various patterns. Not that gift-giving sneaks up on me, or anything. Well, not more than half the time, let’s say.
