Thank you for the inspiration for this from this fantastic blog! This is a great gift idea as well as a fun new idea for carrying your photos of your family around.
It needs lots of pieces but overall is a simple concept. Two envelopes (Medium Whisper White Envelopes #107301) make the purse. I used Kraft cardstock scored in the middle to make the connecting hinge between the two envelopes. I used two pieces of DS paper with a notch cut out with a 1 1/4" circle punch to allow souvenirs inside the envelope. I placed pictures on the inside with stamped images & flowers cut out from So Saffron, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I also used the Bigz die for flower which were lightly distressed and sponged. On the front, ds paper, a top note die stamped and scored made the flap. I used jumbo grommets and grosgrain ribbon as a handle. The front also had a flower and corduroy button held on with a pop up glue dot.
