Designer Paper Bag Tag and Mini Purse

As I mentioned previously, I was involved with several other demonstrators in doing a retreat last weekend for about fifty-two stampers!  The planning committee (of Leslie Bumgarner, Connie Stewart, Jann McCollom and myself) made several gifts for the participants such as a bag tag, early registration gift, and others which I will post at later times.  Today's projects are the tags we made for the participants bag which held some supplies and also held their projects once they completed them and another gift for those who registered early.
Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper was adhered to a square of the light paperboard in the back of a package of DSP then cut with the Big Shot and the large Scallop Circle Die.  The guests' first initial was diecut from Pacific Point cardstock with the Serif Alphabet Dies then adhered to the tag.  This was tied onto the handle of white paper gift bag for project supplies and completed projects.  Isn't that DSP gorgeous!!

The next project is a mini purse made from the 6 x 6" In Color Designer Paper Pack which is a Level 1 Hostess choice in the current 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog (expires June 30!).
We made around fifty of these little cuties for our guests (and one for each of us, lol!).  This one is shown in a Poppy Parade print; there are several patterns in each color so we combined them for a fun look!  The flowers were punched with the BoHo Blossoms Punch and attached with Silver Mini Brads, as were the handles.  An Oval Punch of Poppy cardstock is the closure under the flower; Velcro holds the purse closed.

Four chocolate candies were wrapped with the same DSP and placed inside for a little treat!
 Here they are, all ready to be given out!  Aren't they colorful?!!

These purses were found on Stampin' Connection, a part of the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator website and a wonderful source for sharing and inspiration for demos; they were posted by France Martin and also on her blog; thanks, Frenchie, for the inspiration!

I hope you enjoyed these projects!  Thanks for visiting today! I'll have more projects soon!

Beautiful tag and what a cute purse! I will have to look up Frenchie's blog and post to see how to make these purses. It looks like they are made from one 6 x 6 piece of paper.
