My Five Fave Embellies #5 >>> Buttons Black Assortment
This has got to be one of the most fun little gift boxes to make. It was super easy to put together after my Cricut Expression 2 did all the cutting for me! ;)
I used my Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Cartridge to cut out this little purse on page 31 from my Lagoon Cardstock. It is cut at 3 inches, and assembles to a three inch height. This was the perfect size to hold the necklace my daughter wanted to give her BFF. :)
Here is where a added one of those black glitter buttons! I added a purple sparkle to the middle of this one and attached it with a glue dot to the purse.
Beneath the button, under the flap, I attached the useful hook and loop dots that Close to My Heart now carries. These are super-useful to not only keep the purse closed, but also in allowing the darling little bag to be used again and again! I love the tiny size, but they sure do grip.
Check out the sparkly strap! I used a roll of Reflections glitter tape from my stash and LOVE the way it stands up. You could also use our shimmer trim in silver or black, but I had specific instructions for this little number...
...can you guess the recipient's favorite colors? Her breathless little gasp upon seeing it was all I needed to hear. Spreading the sparkle seems to fill MY bucket with a little more sparkle too! ;)
