Oh my word... we had the best time making these FABULOUS "purses" out of the new Carousel Note cards and envelopes (in the Occasions Mini catalog from Stampin' Up!). HUGE THANKS TO Jan Tinklenberg for posting this most amazing idea on her blog this week!! WOW!!
Yesterday, Sharon and Ellen and I decided to tackle this project... seemed simple enough - well, I mean.. you are just using a pack of Carousel Notes and a pack of Afternoon Tea DSP, right?? LOL.. check this out... here is all the stuff we got out to make this project!!
OK, back to the pretty projects.... here are the 3 purses we made, including some close ups of some of the fun embellishments we came up with.
The "purse" is made with 2 of the big 6x6 Chocolate Chip envelopes that come wtih the Carousel Notes, plus a piece of Choc. Chip c/s measuring 6-3/16" sq. (scored in 1/2) in the center (the envelope flaps are both stick to this). Then you add a Carousel note for the top flap, and put a Carousel note inside each envelope pocket, and embellish with Afternoon Tea DSP (and a ton of other stuff!) LOL
