Clutch Purse

Decided to take a little break from the pinwheel album
to create this little clutch purse card holder.
My friend, Nancy, had just done one
and I couldn't wait until she
had time to show me how
she did it, so I googled it
and found this fabulous you-tube video
that shows you step-by-step.
It's by a Stampin' Up demonstrator in the UK.
 
Here's my first attempt. 
I must say that it's pretty easy.
The normal A2 cards will not fit,
but it's perfect to hold a set of cards and envelopes
for a pretty gift. It's made using the
We R Memory Keepers
Envelope Punch Board.
 
 
I used some DP from an old
Stampin' Up stash.
It features self closing "tabs".
There's one in the back that
tucks down into the box.
You can see the one in the front
that's used for the flap.

 
The ribbon is also from Stampin' Up.

 
The pretty flower "bling" is from ???
I've purchased bunches of loose
bling over the years and just
store them in jars.
Pearls are from Bo Bunny.
Ooops - I see I missed cleaning
off a bit of glue - those camera
close-ups are a good tool for those
pesky details LOL.
 
 I plan on doing a few more of these
and fill them with cards, but this
was my prototype.
 
Hope you enjoyed it.
