Purse Gift

Here's something I did last month but haven't gotten around to posting - the days are just flying by. We spent all weekend out working on the lawn and I'm crispy and bright red!
My niece Tiffany turned 30 this last month and I made this paper purse for her. Sorry I didn't hide the office mess in the background. I rushed to get it done and then barely remembered to take photos of it when it was done. I scraplifted this from Renee R. and I don't know where she got it from. I'm testing a new camera (cheap thing I got the day after Thanksgiving that I just barely took out of the packaging) - looks like focusing is an issue - I can't find a way to auto focus. I used Veranda Paper Pack for this purse.
Filigree Charms were used for the button on the front of the purse. There is some weight to the brad and being metal it will keep the front flap from jumping open.

2 scores create the bottom of the purse. The finished size is 3.5 x 8.5 inches. I decided to leave off the handle and make it a clutch style. Base is 8.5" x 12" and it's scored at the 3.5", 4.5", 9" and 9.5" inches .

I cut triangles and glued them down for photo corners and they hold the $20 into the top of the card. I bottom I added another piece of Colonial White Cardstock and type the message of Happy Birthday. Her Mom took her to a Casino so the money was a little something extra for her to have fun with.

Thanks for looking.
