Well, it's done - signed, sealed and delivered - and our home of twenty years now officially belongs to a new family. SO many memories, sigh! On the up side, we now longer have to pop up every day to feed the chickens, light the wood stove and clean the wood floors. More time for crafting, right?
This little purse has been around on Pinterest for some time and I did track one version to my friend, Scrapalette's blog here. I used a label from Winter Woodland, and sliced the smaller inset label to form the embellishment on the flap and the body of the purse. I did not add a handle as I wanted to make it look like a coin purse suitable for both boys and girls.
I welded four shamrocks together to form the border and cut it in glitter paper. I added a button tied with twine as the closure. The 3 inch treat bag holds 3 chocolate coins and one lucky 'gold' coin. (I was so worried that the children might try to eat the plastic coin, that I used my alcohol marker to color the clover green so it looked a little different. Crazy, I know!)
Here's the stamped sentiment on the back:-
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Time to think about Easter. : ) Christine
