I have been wanting to do one of these ever since I saw it on Jan Tink's website, which really has some amazing stuff on there. Anyway, I always seem to need a purpose to actually make 3-D art, so I chose to use my mother-in-law's birthdays as the excuse to make this.
I did have a lot of fun making this, and it really was quite simple, even though it may look a bit difficult. Using 2 square Chocolate envelopes from the Carousel Notes and a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock that measures 6" x 6 3/16", the body of the purse is made.
I wanted my colors to match the colors of the Autumn Vine DSP, so I had to make my own inserts for the pockets. I liked the look of the circles as well, so I did not scallop the edges.
The inside pocket is an envelope that I covered with some of the DSP after I ran it through the Cuttlebug on the embossing template D'vine Swirl. Inside the pocket I included a gift card.
