The purse was a die cut that I sponged color onto first, then used some of the matching striped paper to cover the front and back of it. I also used the matching ribbon to create a little handle. I used a rub-on to add some decoration to the flap and a matching eyelet to help hold it closed. I used linen thread to tie the bow in the front. This really is a great size to tuck a little gift card into along with some Hershey's kisses (cause what is a wedding without some kisses??) I'm really hoping they enjoy these items.
