Creations with Purse-a-nality!


Happy Thursday! Today, I am going to show you a fun way to use some of the wonderful Jenni Bowlin papers in a different way!

These little nugget purses are wonderful little gifts you can give to friends or even make and give with a card! I found this little purse idea over on Splitcoaststampers a few years ago and have altered it for the size nuggets I buy at the time. I have even used the snack size candy bars and made it a little bigger!

Here are a few samples - keep it simple and let all the designer paper do the work for you or add an extra little touch with some stamping and a stamped image!

This template below shows you the measurements. The black numbers are your width and length. So 4.25" length, 1.50" width. The red numbers are your score marks from end 1.25", from that score mark 2.25", from that score mark 3.50". The red wavy line is your scallop edge if you choose to use a scallop edge. I have a picture with the solid color card stock (which is the template, the designer paper will always be a little shorter to save wasting) any paper.


Next, glue the designer paper to the solid cards stock template like this.


Then, fold on the score marks like this and punch a hole in the scallop ends for your ribbon to go through.

This is what the inside will look like after you have tied your ribbon through.



Then, you turn it over fold and punch for your brad, punch to add your primas, or glue down and decorate as above.

Here's a peek again at all of the options!
These are really simple honestly and so much fun! I hope you give it a try and let us see your creation!

Have a great day!

OH! Aren't these the cutest things ever??? Love all the color coordinated potential with the JB papers! Should I dare you to see how many you can make out of one paper pack. No, forget I said that -- you're such an energizer bunny when it comes to stamping - you would probably do it! LOL!
