This was a fun project...
I used this tutorial found on SCS to make the card purse. It was really pretty easy to do. The hardest part was deciding on what DP and image to use. I went with this "school themed" paper from DCWV and the apple image from "Apple a Day" digital set by Designed2Delight. Great set! I just followed the directions to make the purse and used ribbon for the handles. I added two red buttons to the front that were threaded with black embroidery floss. I colored up the apple image, cut it out and attached it to the front of the box with foam tape. The sentiment is a stamp by Hero Arts.
I kept the note cards clean and simple. I don't like to give a gift of note cards that require extra postage to mail. The finished touch is the jumbo paper clip. I pick these up sometime ago and have been wanting to make one of these. I used my Cuttlebug and a flower shape to cut out the card stock and some chipboard. I punched a circle out of the DP, adhered and added a little black button to the center. I used E6000 glue to hold everything together, but I think you can also use crystal effects. I have been using crystal effects to attached odd things to my cards and project more often because I don't like to smell the fumes from the E6000 glue. I made my paper clip double sided, so it looks the same on both sides.
