Apple Card Purse

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.

Thanks for stopping by!
