Happy Mother's Day

As a Mother's Day gift for the special Mums in my family I have made these tiny purses. They are big enough to hold 3" x 3" cards and envelopes. I have filled these purses with some little treats for them to sit back and enjoy. If Mums ever get a chance to do that.
As we will be saying goodbye to all our current Designer Series Papers within the next few weeks I thought this would be a lovely way to use the papers.

This design is a CASE from Becky Roberts an American Demonstrator who has so many amazingly clever ideas.

If you would like to make these little purses you will need:
1 piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) 11" x 3-1/2"
Coordinating cardstock 2-1/2" x 5-1/8" scored on all four sides for purse base
3 x 1/2"strips of A4 cardstock cut from the long side
2 x 1/2 strips cut at 6" long for handles

To construct the purse make the 2-1/2" x 5-1/8" cardstock into a box  then wrap the DSP around the outside making sure it is level with the base of the box adhering with 'Tear and Tape' as you go.
Adhere the 1/2" strips to the bottom of the box, around the top and inside top.
Adhere the 6" strips of cardstock for handles to both sides.
Decorate as you like.
All the other measurements I have seen online require you to use 12" x 12" cardstock for these gift purses so a big thank you to Katie Legge for providing me with the measurements to be able to use the Australian A4 size cardstock.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Mother's Day to all the Mum's.
Have a lovely day.
