Purse Gift Card & Holder

One of my professional friends, Eileen Hull, has a great line of dies on Sizzix®.  Her dies are created so you can use them in many different ways.  Make sure to visit her Sizzix Spring Linky Party. 

I needed a gift card and holder for my niece’s birthday party, so I grabbed an old white gift box and made the folder and a gift card.  I used dimensional bead paint to creat the white beads on the “purse” base (Card Holder).


I used orange polkadot scrapbook paper on the top of the purse and orange ribbon to hold the purse to the gift bag. 

The flower die help me to create this fun flower for the purse and the Flower was also decorated with the dimensional bead paint. 

I used another Sizzix die to create the gift card and the flower on the card came with the holder base.
