a few gift card purses

Here are a few gift card purses I did today too. The are all cut from a 6x6 piece of double sided card stock or patterned paper. I used button and rhinestones and Cricut cut flowers, to embellish and I used my assorted ribbons for the handles.. To keep the card purse from popping opened, I used white velcro circles and I would use buttons or jewel brads or bigger bling for a fake purse closure. the papers were DCWV and American craft and K&Company. On the inside I cut stips of plain card stock and adhered it with sticky tape on ends and a small piece on bottom of strip to put gift card in so it won't fall out the bottom. and the added assorted sentiment to the bottom inside of the purse. Hope the explanation is understandable. I am not a pro, just do this cause I LOVE IT!!
Hope you enjoy!!
