I'm so excited for 2 reasons 1. we're going to the new Moustache Cafe and I haven't been there yet and 2. I finally get to meet some of the new Designers.
I really wanted to make a little "something" for the other gals and I came across the cutest little clutch purses made by Brenda Quintana over on the Scor-Pal website.
So I got out my Bella Rose paper from Stampin' Up! and whipped up 10 of these!
I know they don't look like much from this vantage point so I've included some close up photos.
I used an oval label holder and put everyone's name on the ribbon "strap".
TIP: I used a small torch (a BBQ lighter will do) to heat the ends of the ribbon so it won't fray
I'll put some chocolate treats inside each one.
I really struggled with putting their names on the purses. I thought about using "for you" so that they could trade or even regift them (I'm all for regifting!). But in the end I went with the names to make it more personal.
What do you do when you give someone something handmade - put their name on it or make it generic so that they can pass it on?
