Spent most of the day trying to put my kitchen and laundry room back together after it was pretty much turned upside down during the new tile installation. Note to self: don’t go out of town when a project like this starts! If you do, expect everything that needed to be moved to end up in a big pile in the garage. Aye, aye, aye! It’s taken me DAYS to sort everything out! But I digress….
As I was returning items to my “craft closet”, I noticed a pile of scrapbook paper that was calling my name. :-) It has apparently been too long since I indulged my paper craft obsession…because the paper was calling really loud! It’s almost as if the paper KNEW I’d just seen a super cute project at Sweet T Makes Three that I was dying to make! So, I decided the re-organizing of the kitchen/laundry room/craft closet would have to wait a little longer while I made some of these fun Notecard Purses. Actually it didn’t have to wait long…this is a quick and easy craft with a big cuteness pay-off. :-)
To be honest, I really have no idea what I’m going to use them for…..YET. But I’m sure something will come up. I’m sure you all will have some great suggestions. Obviously they would be darling for a party invite of some sort!
- scrapbook paper
- Purse Notecard Template
- spray adhesive (or double sided tape)
- utility knife
Print the template onto a piece of cardstock by clicking the photo to enlarge, then right-click to save to your computer.
Cut one large piece of scrapbook paper into two pieces. Take 1/2 of one piece and glue it to 1/2 of another complimentary piece using spray adhesive or double stick tape. Trace template onto the assembled scrapbook paper piece.
Cut the solids lines, create the slits using a utility knife, and fold into thirds.
Glue on a button to finish.
To turn these cute purse notecards into mailable invites…simply fold the handle down…and insert into a 4 – 3/8 x 5 – 3/4 envelope.
I don’t know about you….but almost every invitation that comes through this house is put directly on the fridge. How cute are these as little fridge reminders?!? I think I need to plan a party JUST so I can send these invites! :-)
