Gift card purses


Challenges:
fancy folds-Charisma Cardz
anything goes-Paper Sundaes
anything but a card-Penny's Paper
n is for neutral-Abc Challenges

*picture heavy, sorry*

I saw this on Hetty's (Craft Chaos) blog, she had the tutorial from Kim Burmeister on her blog. So I used these papers from 7Gypsies Avignon 6x6 pack. Just a tip, if there is a lot of pattern on the paper its really hard to see when your folding the sides. So I just folded them backwards first, then forwards, lot easier that way. You will see on the video tutorial, its a little diagonal fold. So I didnt have hook and loop tape like Kim did, so I did have some magnet buttons. They would be took bulky to put on the front as a clasp, so I just glued them to the insides and it works easy peasy. So then I used a Tim Holtz gear for a clasp look on one and all the rest of the embellishments are from Claire Hampton, Vintage Revisited tags and icons die cuts. I love them, and the little folder opens, so you can write a message. These are perfect for a gift card or even a small gift. I give out gift cards for birthdays and Christmas, so I foresee more of these in the future.
