Thanks a Bunch Apple Purses

Hello everyone, thanks for your kind words on my swaps and door prize that I had made for this weekends Michigan Mingle get together. I'm back and I had a very fun time on my trip, there were lots of laughs and it was great to meet so many friends.

The apple purses that you see here I had made before I left as gifts for the three women (Tracy, Lorien & Patty) who had coordinated the whole Michigan Mingle trip as a little thank you for all their hard work. The idea and directions for the Top Note Purse I found at Becky Roberts blog, I thought that her Top Note purse was so darling I couldn't wait to try and make one!


The only difference in my Top Note purses other than the stamps and designer paper is the fact that Becky used the SU Scallop Circle Sizzix die which I don't have so I used my Large Scallop circle Nestabilities die. Other than that the directions were easy to follow and the purse was fun to make, I think I may even do something like these as part of my next Stamp Camp for Mothers Day.



On the inside of each purse I put three Gardelli Carmel filled chocolates with my business card and a little note.
Supplies: Tart & Tangy, Summer Picnic DSP, Top Note Sizzix die, Circle punches, Oval punches, Nestabilities, Ribbon, Eyelets, Tacky Tape, Velcro. Colors: Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White.
Well I'm wiped out from staying up late for the last two nights and talking, stamping and doing lots of laughing so I'll be hitting the hay early tonight.
Thanks for stopping by!
