A Yummy Little Top Note Purse

We ladies do love our handbags, don't we! Here's a cute idea for using your Big Shot Top Note Die to make an adorable little purse that will hold small goodies for gifting, table favors or even place cards at the table.

First I die cut two Top Notes out of the polka dot Sweet Slumber Specialty card stock then used the Large Oval Punch to punch out the handle. Take a small bag, like a miniature grocery sack, cut it down to fit between the bottom of the handle opening and the bottom of the die. Attach it to both the front and back die cuts with good adhesive. All that's left is to embellish it and/or add a tag!

I used the Sale-A-Bration set Yummy, stamped it in Riding Hood Red ink on coordinating Baja Breeze card stock and trimmed it out with my Paper Snips (those are the best ever for fine cutting!). I punched out a little RH Red heart with the small heart in the Heart to Heart punch and attached it to the front label. The inner sack was filled with red foil wrapped chocolate kisses and a tie was added on the handle with Baja Breeze Stitched Grosgrain ribbon. Viola! Done! A darling little gift container that is so easy, inexpensive and yet memorable!

Have you purchased one of those wonderful Big Shot die cutting machines yet? I am enjoying mine so much and it really has expanded my creative possibilities, to say the least! Stampin' Up! will also continue to bring out new dies to give us unlimited opportunities for cardmaking, scrapbooking, 3D items and more! I'm putting together plans for a Big Shot club where my customers can purchase the Big Shot over a period of time because I want them to be able to enjoy it as I do. If you don't already have a demonstrator, you are welcome to contact me for details.

Thanks for visiting today! Come back soon!

This is simply darling, Margaret! I will never forget the first time I stamped with you, many years ago. You were making a little purse to hold a birthday gift for one of your family members. Yes, we DO love our handbags, and this one is awesome!
