On the Tenth Day of Christmas... crafty hands made me, invites to the party!

Really!  One of my girlies celebrated her special day yesterday, and these are the cutie-pie purse invites we came up with.

I welded two purse shapes from the Ultimate Creative Sampler Cartridge together in the Cricut Craft Room so that the bottoms lined up to be the fold of the card.  Have you tried CCR out yet?  If you own a Cricut cutting machine, you simply MUST!  You can so many things that you just can't do with just your machine.  It is FREE, so you must try it.

I blinged up the front of the purse with a bit of shimmer trim.  My daughter begged to have it on there, really she did! 

We typed up all the party info on Word, printed it out, and attached it to the inside of the card.  I used a hole punch to add some twine as a closure.  She was ecstatic and I was happy to have it checked off my list!  :)  Win-win!


  1. These turned out adorable! I bet you were also ecstatic that she wanted shimmer trim on the! She's definitely your daughter ;-)

    1. Ha, ha ha! Yes--I was quite torn however with using up my stash! ;) Oh well, there is always more where that came from! ;)


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
