Gift Card/Money Purse

 I needed another cute gift card/money holder and I found this on Angie's website
 Let's get started.  You will need one piece of designer paper (DSP) cut at 6" by 6" and a solid coordinating color card stock (CS) cut at 4 1/4" by 5 1/2".  I used Stampin' Up DSP and Pretty In Pink CS.
 I took the Pretty in Pink CS and on the Big Shot cut out the Top Note die.  This piece will be the top of the purse.

Fold the piece of DSP in half. With the opening facing down, place it on your cutter and cut at an angle with the top edge right on the cutting line and the bottom aligned with the right side 3/4" line.
Score the top note in the middle and fold in half. With the Crop-A-Dile punch two holes on one side of the score line.  Sponge the outer edges of the top note piece with brown ink. 
Cut 9 inches of ribbon.  Insert ribbon through both holes and with regular tape adhere the ends of the ribbon down on the CS.
Glue the body of the purse to the top note hiding the ribbon tips.  Cut  a 4-1/4" by 1-1/4" piece of Pretty In Pink CS.  Sponge edges with brown ink.  Add adhesive to the sides only and glue it to the inside of the purse.
 Stamp "Just For You" with pink ink on a scrap piece of white CS and punch it out with the Scallop Oval punch.  Sponge around the edges of this piece.  Add dimensionals and glue it to the the flap of the purse.
 Stamp "Even the naughty ..." with pink ink and punch it out with the Scallop Square punch.  Also sponged the edges with pink ink. Add dimensionals and glue to the inside bottom of the purse.
We're done!  Only one thing left to do is to place a gift card or a "Ben Franklin" in the inside pocket. 

On the rest of these purses I embossed the top note of each purse with a different Stampin' Up embossing folder.  They make great gift card holders, but you can also use these purses as invitations.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Have a great day and enjoy your Monday!
