Back in September, I got the inspiration for this from some GORGEOUS mini totebags kellysattery made. She, in turn, credited Leigh for the design. Upon investigation, I realized you needed to be a paying member to get the template. At the time, I was not a paying member. I showed the picture of her 'totebag' to dh and I explained I wanted mine big enough to hold some cards so I could give it as a "gift set". He helped me come up with a template.
I found the " Faux Gucci" cardstock at our Fall Stamp Festival at the "Darcies" booth. They also sold the "Faux Leather" accents. I had to 'modify' these 'leather' cut outs because they only fit the purse templates that Darcies sells (their 'purse' was also too small for the idea I had in mind). The finished product was VERY well received by the person I gave the gift to this Christmas. She's ALWAYS 'hinted' that she'd love to have some of my cards. I hope to make more 'gift sets'... one of these days!
