Note Card Holder Purse

Good Afternoon Ladies, today on SCS the limited supply challenge LSC217, was to make a card that had the colors of one of your rooms in your house. Well of course I picked my stamping room :)... I know this was a LSC so I tried to keep this as simple as I could, exspecially my note card. I bought these little chipboard purses at Michaels. I knew I could use them for something, what woman doesn't love their purses!!! So after a little of thought, I thought a little note holder would be perfect!!!

Here is the recipe Ladies

- Chipboard Purse from Michaels... It was only 1.00 even better, you can make two of these with one purse..

- Primas

- Bag of Buttons, White and Blue

- SU Twine

- Butterfly background stamp Inkadinkado

- Ribbon

- Kraft Cardstock

- Bashful Blue Cardstock

- Whisper White Cardstock

- CB With Love Folder

- Marvey Scallop Circle Punch

- Circle Punch

I first detached the chipboard book, covered both sides with Kraft Paper. Stamped my image in Ballet Blue, shows up darker than bashful blue. I attached the two chipboard purses together with a base at the bottom with Bashful blue cardstock and spray adhesive. I attached the ribbons to the top to have it stand completely up. I then added primas, buttons, and twine.

The little note cards were simple, The card base is bashful blue, ran a piece of kraft through the cb and then attached. I punched a scallop and circle, attached, and added a button... Really easy...The cards slip right in the purse!!! Here's a picture of that!!

I am going to make another one way more fancy, I wanted to do this one for my room, for the limited supply challenge, so I tried not to over do it!!! Hope you like it ladies!! This was a really fun project and a simple one to make....

I am really glad its Friday, tomorrow is the big convention. I am soooo excited!! Can't wait to get some new goodies, everytime I go though I think Inky Antics and Stamps by Judith take all of my money...HA!!! I hope you guys have a wonderful day... Thanks for visting my blog!
