I saw this sweet little purse and it got me thinking of the old days when you would wear your best to Easter Sunday mass. I am one of three girls, and my mom would always buy us a new dress, hat, shoes, gloves and if we were lucky - a little purse just like the one I made. My sisters and I all have a different hair color and my mom would always dress us in our "chosen" color. My older sister is a red head and the first girl so she was always dressed her in pink. I am the middle girl - blond - so I was always in blue, and my little sis is a brunette and mom would dress her in green.
The little purse I made today would be perfect for any of us. This would be a great gift box filled with yummy cookies or candies, or little cosmetics - like lip balm, nail polish and hand lotion. You can get the directions here. The only thing I did different was to add a grosgrain ribbon handle instead of the paper one in the directions.
There are lots and lots of ideas on line at the Scor Pal site with clever boxes and cards to make. If you are looking for a little more inspiration check out what the design team came up with!
