Carousel Notes Photo Purse

How exciting! Jan Tinklenberg had a fabulous use for SU’s new Carousel Notes on her blog the other day…I couldn’t even wait to get started on it when I saw the post last night!! You can view her original creation HERE. I have not ordered the Tea Party designer paper yet, but after seeing so many beautiful things created with it I just might have to! I decided to create a version of this cute little purse using the Embrace Life stamp set and Ginger Blossom designer paper. The purse is made using the carousel notes, and 2 of the chocolate chip envelopes that come in the package, how cool is that???


I used Groovy Guava and Ruby Red classic ink, and sponged it onto the flowers using a sponge dauber…no coloring needed, even more simple! The purse is held shut with a velcro closure, and I punched holes in the top with the Crop-a-dile, inserted the ribbon and actually stuck it under the envelope with sticky strip so it’s not seen on the inside of the purse.

Here’s a view of the inside once the purse is open:

Here are the close-ups of each part of the inside (my camera is acting up, so the pictures aren’t the best, sorry!)
