Hello!  Today I want to share a project I made a while back with my friend Mayra.  She designed this little bag/purse that holds 4 little mini cards.  I think it's so stinkin' cute.   I love mini things!  You could also use this bag to give away a small gift, like jewelry, money, or a gift card.  The paper we used is the This and That designer series paper, and the stamp set is the Hostess set, Banner Greetings.  We punched out several flowers of the same shape and size, then secured all the layers with a brad.  After the brad was secured, we sprayed the top flower with a little bit of water and scrunched up the flower.  Once we did the first layer, we moved on to the second, third and fourth layer, to get a more realistic looking flower.  Flat flowers just aren't as appealing as a scrunched up flower.  We punched some holes at the top of the bag, threaded some retired pool party ribbon, and then secured it on the inside by tying knots so the ribbon doesn't come out.  You could also use sticky strip instead of tying knots at the ends of the ribbon.  I used a small amount on the outside of the bag so that the ribbon would stay upright instead of falling down.

I hope you enjoyed today's post, and I'll see you tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!
