Mini Stationary Purse

Summer is flying by. I have lots to do, but have had headaches a lot that seem like Migraines. So I haven't got much accomplished yet. I am a teacher and summer school was out June 30th so I have had 10 days and I should have got something completed, but I have become a couch potato instead.

Saw this project on Inking Idaho and thought I would give it a try. The link gives instructions on how to make it. It is really rather easy. The approximate size is 6" X 6 1/2". So it isn't very large. I used 3 pieces of solid card stock and one piece of printed to make the actual purse.

I used my coluzzle to cut the ovals for the handles. There is a pocket on the front, back and one inside. I used CTMH Emporium paper for the decoration on the outside pockets and Emporium Creative Basics for the inside pocket.

It wouldn't stay closed the way I wanted it to, so I used some velcro spots on the top corners. The inside pocket is for envelopes and the original had a mini notepad and pen on the other side. I don't have or can't find any mini- notepads, so that will have to wait until I get to the store.

The one on Inking Idaho has cards that coordinate and they go in the outside pockets. Here are 2 simple cards that I have started.

Thanks for looking

Always find you Happy Place
