Last Monday while a storm raged through our neighborhood, my inconsolable Sheltie and I got comfortable on the floor. I grabbed a stack of scrap paper, my cutter, and my scoring tool and began to design. My quest was to create a new Ghirardelli Square purse to showcase at stamp club. I hope you like what I came up with and if you want to create your own, just follow my tutorial below.
Details: This purse uses 2 Ghirardelli Squares. The beauty of this is that the purse can stand up and therefore also makes a really cute place card holder. I used the in-colors to create a rainbow of purses with matching designer paper, ribbon and glimmer brads. The other cool thing, is that you can get 4 purses out of a sheet of 12″ x 12″ designer paper.

5. Loop the ribbon around and feed it through the cut mark on the other side. Remove ONE more adhesive liner and adhere the other ribbon end to it. In the photo, I’m lifting up the designer paper, so that you can see how the ribbon is looped and also where it is adhered on the other side.
10. Close the purse and pierce through the top layers and secure with a glimmer brad. Make sure that the top edges of the purse are aligned before piercing. The outer sides are meant to bow slightly to accommodate the chocolates and to look stylish.
