Top Note Clutch Purse

After hours and hours of cleaning and organizing- I found a little time yesterday to craft!!! My room is still a bit messy. But I have taken lots of stuff out so I should be able to find a home for all the stuff that is currently littering my desk and floor!!!

Tomorrow, I am supposed to bring the ladies at my MOPS table a little gift. The theme of the gift is "something girly." My co table leader got them some lip gloss and nail polish and asked if I could make a box. Of course!!!! I think this top note clutch purse will fir the gift perfectly and it is very girly!!!

I used some tiny little maganets by Basid Grey to keep the purse closed...

Isn't that fun?!!!!

I have seen lots of little purses and boxes in blogland- but I made mine up from my own crazy head. So here are the demensions.

-Start with a piece of cardstock that is 5x6

-Score along the 6 inch side at 1inch and 5 inches

-Score along the 5 inch side at 2 and 3

-Use sticky strip to put the box together.

-Use the Top Note die to cut the lid from DSP

-Score the top note at approx. 1 1/4 and 2 1/4

-Add large eyelets and a ribbon handle to the center of the top note

-Adhere to the back of the box with sticky strip.

-Add a small magnet to keep the purse closed.

-Decorate if desired!!!
