Candy Purses

Hi Friends,

I love Valentine's Day. It's a great time to share your love and appreciation to those around you. Little gifts and treats are a great way of spreading the love around easily and inexpensively.

These little candy purses can use scrap cardstock and supplies.

Here's what you will need:

TR12 Sweet Treat Blocks Trifles Set (Scallop Square stamp)
E114 Small Circle Dot Frame
F183 Double Circle stamp
Versafine Onyx Black ink pad
ATG adhesive
Boutique Buttons
PC21 White Cardstock
PC45 Amethyst Cardstock
PC49 Lavender Cardstock
Marvy purple Oval Scallop Punch (2x3 inches)
Marvy purple Square Scallop Punch (2 inches)
Marvy purple Rectangle Scallop Punch (1.5x2.5 inches)
Marvy yellow Scallop Circle Punch (1.5 inches)

Here are the Marvy punches

Here are the DeNami stamps I used

 For the hot pink purse, punch out 2 scallop rectangles.

 Fold about 4 scallops in, or 1 inch from edge approximately

 Using an ATG adhesive applicator, apple to the folded ends and attach ends together.

 Apply ATG adhesive to inside and press candy, such as Rolo, Hershey's Nuggets, Hershey's Kisses, hard candies, etc.
 On White cardstock, stamp scallop square with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad.

 Detail cut or Fussy cut the scallop with scissors.

 Fold diagonally in half.

 Apply ATG adhesive and attach to top of purse.

 Gather buttons and rhinestones

 Apply ATG adhesive to your fingers and press on button to adhere adhesive.
 Continue stacking another button and then a self adhesive rhinestone.

 Attach to purse base.

 For handle, stamp Dot Circle stamp with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad.
 Punch out using Marvy 1.5 inch scallop circle punch, centering it in the window.
 Super easy to do this.

 Fold it in half.
 Using scissors, cut out center.

 Unfold creating a ring.
 Apply ATG adhesive to your finger and then press ring to the adhesive until it transfers.
 You should have a sticky front ring.
 Attach to purse body.
 Look how adorable this looks!

 Here is the other variation using Scallop Oval punches.
 Here it is using the Square Scallop punch. Punch out three and fold one 2 scallops in or just make sure the middle surface is wide enough for your candy. This one is about 1 inches wide.
 Apply ATG to the folded sides and then attach the square scallops to the adhesive.
 Optional: Cut off about 1.25 inches from the end or 2 scallops.

 Turn over and apply ATG adhesive and press on candy.

There are so many variations you can come up with. You can vary the depth and make them shallower for Post-it Notes. You can also put a mini bag inside and fill with loose candies, like M&M's.
These would also make great little girls' birthday party favors, bridal shower favors, Mother's Day gifts, ladies' luncheons favors, etc.
Hope you enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed making them. Once you get started, they are so easy to make lots of them. Have fun.
