Gift Purse (and another project - Legos!)

I know you guys think I craft all day long and don't do anything else with my time. But I really do have other interests. Another thing I love to do is build Lego buildings.  I'm working on the Cinema Palace 3 story building right now. I've got the first 2 floors completed and will probably start and finish the 3rd floor one day next week. Want to see?

First Floor...........


Second Floor...........


Now, back to our regularly scheduled paper craft project.....

This project is my "Clean and Simple" project for the week.
One cut. One metal die.
One ribbon. One magnet set. One ink.

Tim Holtz Walnut stain
My Creative Time Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow die
My Creative Time Scallop & Stitched Circle dies
Cardz TV Stamps "Picture This"
Magnets for closure (Royal Castle Shoppe)
Ribbon from stash
Silhouette ID# 46540 (purse)

Easy Peasy
Fill it with some candy or tissues or $$ and give
as a gift to someone special.

This is so easy, you could make a ton of them
in a short amount of time for party favors,
bridal party gifts,
place cards at a formal dinner, etc. So many ideas.

Thanks for stopping by today!
