Fairy Purse - die cuts

Pretty purple treat bag or gift box for a young girl or just someone who loves fairies, my project features a die cut party foil purse using a Spellbinders die and trinket tag using a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp set.

Putting It Together

After I got a Big Shot Plus, I went in search of the bigger dies that would work with it. I love the steel rule dies in the bigger size that make boxes. Sadly, a lot of them are discontinued.

I used the Contour Purse die with purple Cricut holographic party foil that I got on clearance from Joanns. When I opened the package of the party foil and saw that it's a thick vinyl-y plastic, I wanted to see if this die would work with it. The scores from the die weren't as well defined as they are using it on plastic packaging, so I used a bone folder to reinforce the folds.

I used a bit of purple and blue ribbon to make the strap, instead of the one die cut.

The finishes purse box is so sparkly and pretty!

I stamped and die cut two of the trinkets to add to the purse. I used some blue and white baker's twine to sandwich between the trinkets. I stamped one with Mermaid Melody and the other with Purple Pansy.

I added a rose to the front of the flap above the tab that slips in the slit on the purse.
