Hi Everyone! I finally had the chance to make the coordinating purse/gift bag to hold the cards for my girlfriend! I was inspired by Becky's Top Note Purse Tutorial found at http://inkingidaho.blogspot.com. I needed a gift bag to hold standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cards, so I got a little creative with the Cricut Expression, and altered her directions to make this size purse. I think this purse is so versatile, I call it "My Little Purse of Plenty!" I am sure it will look great in any color scheme and decorated for any occasion! I am looking forward to making this in many colors and blinged out! If anyone is interested in the altered directions for this size purse, please let me know and I will then post them! I hope you like it! As my mother-in-law would say, "Be Sweet!" Until next time...
