Sharon has this very tempting challenge on her Blog and I wanted to participate so I came up with this version of a purse box. It is simply a tote that I have been making for a while using a 8 1/2x 11 piece of CS in this case, cut to size sheet from a stack pack scored on short side @ 1 1/4" from both sides. Than on the long side @ 4 1/2" from both sides. After that I cut a 4x6 piece and rounded the corners and adhered it to the top so it exstands the top edge of the main piece by about 1". The closure is simple velcro dots and to perk it up a little I added a button without shank and some corner embellishments. The purse handle is some grosgrain ribbon attached with two brads. Oh, before I forget. I pinched the sides of the tote part to make it more look like a purse ;-).
Let me know what you think, please.
