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!!!
