Gift Set Ensemble

Ok, so my aunt has been making these really cute gift purses for a while and I had to break down and try one!! She is right, they are really addictive!!!

You can find the directions on her blog, I Stamp, I Sew! Check it out, she has some great stuff on there!

I altered mine a bit... instead of having the purse open and close with ribbon, I put velcro on the back of the top note so it just velcros together! I also used a strip of dp for the handle instead of ribbon. Everything else is the same!

I made this for a thank you gift for one of the lovely volunteers from my dance recital. I think I am going to make up a few more to give because without the ladies who helped me, recital wouldn't have been so smooth!

Included is a photo holder, an altered cannister filled with candy, and an altered mini composition notebook! Of course, I made a thank you card to go with it!

For the card, I used today's Fall to Sketch!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
