Nugget Purse

Since the very first time that I saw a nugget purse it was LUV! I cannot get enough of these little cuties! I am using retired DSP on these while I patiently (yeah, right!) wait for my new DSP to arrive. They are so cute and very easy. I could pop out quite a few of these in an hour. Instructions are below! =] Enjoy the little things in life - especially if they hold CHOCOLATE!!!

Cut a 1 ½” x 4 ½” piece of cardstock. Cut a coordinating 1 ¼” x 4 ½” piece of DSP, or use plain cardstock and run it through the Big Shot with an embossing folder.

Place Sticky Strip along the back of the DSP or embossed sheet, center and attach it to the 1 ¼” x 4 ½” piece of cardstock.

Take the assembled piece and place it on the paper cutter and score at 1 - 3/16”, 2 - 3/16”, 3 ½” and 3 ¾”. Fold the creases.

Take a 5” piece of coordinating ¼” grosgrain ribbon (or color your white ribbon with the Stampin’ Up! Write markers). Place a piece of sticky strip along the ¼” section on the inside of your purse, peel it then attach the ribbon to make the handle.

Using the Trio Flower Punch, punch out the flowers in a complimentary colored cardstock or DSP. Place flower on the mat pack, pierce a hole through the center, and stick a brad through it but don't open it just yet.

Close the flap on the purse and punch a hole through both layers of the purse with a paper piercer. Run the brad through the hole and secure it.

Take a 1” x 3” piece of coordinating DSP and adhere along the back then wrap it around each nugget.

EASY!!! And so stinking cute!
