My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Accordian Purse

After looking at these pictures, I realized I didn't take a side shot. (It has the cute polka dot coordinating papers there and on the handle.) Oh well, too late now...I already gave this gift away...but this is what I mentioned I would post earlier in the week.

I wish I could remember where I got the instructions from, but I jotted them down months ago before I started blogging. It took me about an hour to complete and I used papers I purchased on sale last year. The flower embellishment was made using a small Cuttlebug embossing folder, punching it out using the Stampin Up scallop punch and finishing up with a circle punched from the coordinating paper. A magnet keeps it shut. ( I tried a Velcro dot, but I thought it held it too tight and was bending the card stock when I opened it.)

I decided to fill it with tea since the weather has turned chilly, and it fit the large Celestial Seasonings packets perfectly. When the tea is gone, it is perfect to organize receipts for the up coming holiday season.

Thanks for letting me share this today and here are the rest of the specifics not mentioned above.

Details-Paper: Bazzill, American Crafts, Red super sticky tape
