Big Ole Flower Purse

Hello!!! Hope you had a great weekend. I did....got a new minivan, went for a few runs, played outside with the kiddos and went to a school carnival. Fun times!

I created this little gift card holder using my Perfect Purse template (Gina K Designs) and some tan leather cardstock (love this stuff!): This time, instead of making the bag really elaborate...I kept it super simple so I could add this fancy flower.

The flower is created from designer paper from Jillibean Soup. I used the blossom die from Spellbinders and cut five layers for the flower and then just scrunched each layer. I cut a flower from another piece of designer paper from Jillibean for the center. Then I cut the leaves. (Sigh! Love this paper!)

Tip: Make your paper go further---the patterned paper I used for the leaves says "Happy Holidays" but I cut the shape so that just the word "happy" shows.

Materials used: Designer paper- Old World Cabbage Soup Paper:brown rice, Grandmas Christmas Soup:Can Tomato Soup (Jillibean Soup); Perfect Purse template (Gina K Designs); brad and eyelets (Making Memories); Blossom cutting dies (Spellbinders); cardstock-tan leather, chocolate kiss (Gina K designs); caramel stamp pad (SU!).

Did you know that Stamp TV turns one this week??? Keep checking Gina's blog for fun stuff all week long and snippets of the new stamps coming next week!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cammie, You are sooooooo creative and clever too. I love your idea of cutting the leaves so that the happy only shows. Now I have to go look at Jullibean Soup to support my habit! Blessings, Louise
