Stampin Up 3-D Design - Paisley Petals Hand Purse and Greeting Cards

I'm excited today to share with you another Stampin Up Paisley Petals Design.  I am quickly using up the Designer Series Paper, so I can't wait until April 1 to purchase more. 

My share is a hand purse, which I designed, and Stampin Up greeting cards small enough to fit inside the hand purse.  I am really pleased with my designs.  I must say, I so enjoy creating paper crafts!  

I will share the details of the hand purse today, and the cards tomorrow.   The front of the hand purse is decorated with Baja Breeze Stampin Glitter, butterflies from the Stampin Up Beautiful Wings Embosslits Dies, and Basic Pearls Jewels

Are you wondering about the chain?  Well, it is the Stampin Up Simply Adorned 24" Chain.  I have to say that I was impressed with myself when I thought of using the chain for the purse handle (LOL - come on, aren't you proud of yourself occasionally?).  I think the chain fits just perfectly with the purse.  You will notice one of the beautiful, stately Trinket Crowns attached to the chain.  Just love it! 

This picture shows the greeting cards inside the hand purse.  I used Velcro for the fastener.

Now, are you saying, "What can I do with a paper purse!"?  Let me tell you!  Wouldn't this be a beautiful gift for a hostess?  What about a birthday gift?  I think it would be perfect for a new Stampin Up Demonstrator!  It's a piece of handmade art!  OK, give me your feedback! 

Come back tomorrow for the details about the cards!

God's Blessings!

Bev this is a gorgeous creation! And so very clever with using the Simply Adorned chain as the handle.

Your purses are beautiful!! I would love any hints or tutorials on how to make them. My daughter is the President of the Community Service Club at her high school. We would love to make some of these for door prizes for event attendance and such.
