Welcome to my blog today!!  So glad to have you here.  Been another busy month around here...went and spent a great Mother's day with my mom and all my siblings and their families - but glad to be back and get back to my craftiness!!

Today I made a Graduation gift for a young gal who used to babysit my kids when they were much younger.  I will be buying 4 giftcards to slip into the little pockets within the 'purse' carrier.

2 envelopes
5x9.5 pattern cardstock
Embellishments (fiber, button, paper flowers)

1.  Using a decorative diecut, cut one end of cardstock as shown:
2.  Score cardstock at these measurements:
3.  Cut another piece of cardstock and add to front flap:
4. Lick and stick envelopes closed.  Fold envelopes in half.  Trim off very edges of long sides as shown:

5.  Using decorative die cut, temporarily tape on center of trimmed edge and cut. repeat on all four pockets.

6.  Punch holes in center of envelopes and purse.  Add ribbon and tie to the inside.
7.  Punch holes and add 'handle' to the purse:
8.  Add velcro closure by hot gluing velcro onto flap and front.
9.  Add flower embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy my project and find it inspiring!!
