Tiny Purse gift box

Hi everyone!  I had so much fun making this tiny purse!  I think I will fill it with Dove chocolates or some other tasty little treat and give it to a friend who is feeling a little down right now.  Being able to give someone something unique and special is one of my favorite parts about paper crafting!

I wanted the whole purse to be shiny, so after I embossed the black with the Cuttlebug, I heat embossed both the black and the green polka dot pieces with clear embossing powder.

The sentiment is from the Tiny Tags stamp set and I tied it on with a bit of Honeydew bakers twine.  

I thought the rhinestones (Close to My Heart) added a fun touch of bling! 

I cut the purse (black) and green layer at 3.75 inches from the Forever Young cartridge. The cute polka dot paper is from Pebbles.

The green layer is actually supposed to go on the inside, but I added it to the outside of the purse instead and then used my exacto knife to cut a slit for the front of the purse to slide into.

 Have a happy day!
