A sweet money purse!

Hi there!
My posts are being somewhat sporadic right now as I have christmas card orders to fill and am busy doing lots of 'seasonal' stuff, so the next couple of weeks I'll be reducing my blogging time! I came across this cute money holder today when I was visiting my friends in The Stamp Barn(sorry, I don't know who to give the credit to for the template & idea) but I came home and made one up. It's a super cute purse shape and is really easy to do. This is my first one and the next time I would definitely use a sheet of double-sided dp so it gives a nicer finish on the inside. I will still gift this one to my niece though for christmas!
Tilda with Candy is coloured with my copics and then trimmed. Paper and ribbon are from stash. If I perfect this a little better then I will post a template with instructions. Below is a pic of the inside and the little pouch for either money or a gift card. Circular magnets keep the purse closed. I will most likely finish off the middle panel and put a nestie label on there to write my message. This is why I think a double-sided dp sheet will work much better!

Anyways, thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! I love to read your comments so please leave one if you have the time!
Take care all and I'll post again when I next get a chance - can't promise when it'll be!!

How adorable! I don't know how you could perfect it. It is perfect to me. I can see what you mean about using double sided paper, but once opened, they are only looking at the money/gift card anyway right! LOL Thanks for sharing! Best, Curt
