Be Inspired #81- PURSEonality

I created my very first template! Never say "never." I truly never thought I could figure out how to create a template. No doubt it could be tweaked and improved, but I relish this small success. (My template and mini tutorial is here at Cuttlebug Challenge blog.) I used my Provo Craft Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder.

My little purse holds three cards and envelopes. Wanna see?

The cards are so quick and easy to make. I think I may use this as a teacher appreciation gift next week. I apologize if you have Lloyd Price or Johnny Mercer singing in your head for the rest of the day...

I hope you like my little project! There are many more really great purse ideas here at Cuttlebug Challenge blog. Trust me, you will be glad you took the time to look!
