Project Tuesday: Card Purse

You know what Tuesday means around here - time for some great inspiration at Project Tuesday! This week we're making a card purse - these make a perfect gift, I whipped up this one in an hour.

I modified the dimensions somewhat to fit NZ/AUS card and envelope sizes. To make a purse the same size as mine, start with a 4 5/8" by 11 1/2" piece of card stock. Score at 1/2" - 5 1/2" - 6" & 11" along the length and at 1/2" to create the purse base.

The colour combo for my set is Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze & Tangerine Tango. I used some of this gorgeous Pink Pirouette ribbon for an over sized bow to give a fast and easy "wow" factor to the purse.

The cards inside are super simple but still pretty. I've used a general sentiment that could work for lots of occasions.
