Gift Set Challenge #3

This weeks challenge was to create an Accordion File Purse! What fun it was!!! You can find the tutorial HERE!

This was a fun project to put together and went quickly too. I used all Stampin' Up papers and inks. I love how the flower turned out. I used gold Smooch spritz on the flower to finish it off. You can not really tell in hte pictures but the petals really do sparkle! There are so many different ways to make these flowers, I but this time I used the Stampin' Up ornament punch to make mine and used a cute chocolate chip colored brad in the middle to help attach it to the purse flap. My flap is held closed with a magnetic closure. I am going to fill it with a variety of all occasion note cards in matching papers which will make a great gift!

I just love the chocolate chip satin ribbon on the matching card, it is one of my favorite ribbons to use!

You have to check out the other creations on the CSAYL Blog Please join us in the fun you will have so much fun!!!
