Chipboard Purse Box

I am loving today's project ~ LOVING IT!!! I have a stamp club coming up Friday night and originally I was going to make a Days to Remember Calendar, but as I was putting it together, I hated it! YUCK! I was so discouraged because I had been planning the piece in my head for a week and it just wasn't coming together. So I started looking around Splitcoast and some blogs and found this cute purse on Beate's blog ~ SO FUN!!!! Beate is so UBER talented & is always a source of inspiration for me!

Anyway, I really wanted to make some post card type note cards & didn't have the right supplies to hold them inside the purse. So I took a clear card box & sandwiched it between my purse & VOILA ~ a fabulous little chipboard purse! I am THRILLED with how this turned out!

I used the new pattern paper by Stampin' Up! called Good Morning Sunshine with the Cheep Talk stamp set. While I was making this, I remembered I do like working with my SU stamps ~ LOL!

I can't decide which little purse I like better the pears or the sunflowers ~ both are so fun!

Here is the side view with the clear box in between the chipboard pieces.

And the notecards (there are also matching envelopes) that go inside the box.

Woohooo ~ I hope my girls love this as much as I do!

Supplies are all SU (unless otherwise noted): Stamps ~ Cheep Talk & Trendy Trees; Ink & Cardstock ~ Chocolate Chip, Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss; Pattern Paper ~ Good Morning Sunshine; Ribbon ~ 1" Chocolate Chip Stitched, 3/8" Kiwi Kiss Satin; Circle and Scallop punches; Scallop Edge Punch; Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button; Clear Card Boxes ~ Papertrey Ink.

What an absolutely adorable project! Love it. Yes, as much as I love the conveniences of clear stamps, whenever I use my rubbah I remember how good it is to work with. I really don't thing there's a polymer stamp out there with the same firmness of texture as rubber. Ah well, life is a series of trade-offs!

Love this project. Can I ask what size your purse is? What dimensions of cardstock you used so I can case this. Great Job.
