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.

Peppermint Patty Purse

Hi Everyone,

It's rare that I post anything other than cards with my DRS Designs stamps.  Today is an exception...Yay!  I was playing around with ideas for party favors, and inspired by my own nugget purses that I made here, I decided to update the idea for use with a Peppermint Patty.  :) :) :)

Anyway, I used my favorite Polka Dot background stamp ( I swear I could use that on everything I make...It's just great!) and one of the unique stamps sold by DRS Designs named Flourish Ribbon Slide. I stamped it, embossed it with gold powder to simulate a clasp and then cut it out.  Isn't is cool?  I think these would make a great shower, or birthday party favor don't you?

Here is a closer look.  All I did extra was round the corners of the fold over part. 

Here are some other details if you want to make it for yourself.

Cut paper to 5 1/4" x 2 1/4"
Score at 1" & 3".
Make handle with a scrap piece of matching paper. 
Secure everything with glue dots.

Super easy! 

OK, I have a busy week.  Forgive me for not coming to visit and enjoy the dwindling summer days :)
