I wanted to give the neighbor girl something handmade for taking care of our little kittens while we were gone to SU! Convention and her mom said her favorite candy is Rolos, so I thought I'd make something to put some of those in and some money for her wonderful efforts. I used the Edgelit Framelits to cut the edges of a piece of 12 x 6 cardstock that I had scored at 5 1/2 and 6 1/2 to form the purse. The inside of the purse that holds the contents is 4 x 10" and scored on each long side at 2" and then folded up and glued inside. I used the same edgelit for the outside piece of Polka Dot Parade paper (this one is Razzleberry) and cut each edge with it to get this design.
I stamped the word THANK with the first Photopolymer stamp set Designer Typeset in Rich Razzleberry onto Whisper White cardstock that I had stamped the dotted pennants from Pennant Parade stamp set using Daffodil Delight ink and then punched them out with the Pennant Builder punch and layered them onto Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight pennants. I stamped the "U" using the Morning Post alphabet stamps in Pumpkin Pie onto WW cardstock and punching out with the 1 1/4" circle punch and layering onto Melon Mambo 1 3/8" circle. I added different colors of Itty Bitty flowers and one Silver Glitter one to the "U", and finished them off using Basic Rhinestones. For the handles, I cut 1"x 11" strips of cardstock and stapled with mini staples and covered them with the Large Rhinestones.
I am a SAHM and I have 4 girls and two adorable grandsons. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 22 years. I have been a Stampin'Up! demonstrator for 11 years. Along with stamping, I try to scrapbook and love spending time with family and friends.
