I've been promising you greeting cards made with the Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes (FREE with a $50 purchase!) and I think these were worth waiting for! 

Tutti-frutti cards and Envelopes

These cards were made by some of my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators. At our demonstrator gatherings we each bring a number of cards that we have made and swap with the other demonstrators at the gathering. We all go home with lots of new ideas and beautiful samples. The top sample was designed by Lynnie Schwiebert and the other two were designed by Deb Geier, thank you both for these gorgeous cards!

Would you like to join me for our demonstrator gatherings? If you sign up as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, not only do you get to swap cards with talented demonstrators, but you get a discount on all your stamps and supplies! The best bargain in the catalog is the demonstrator starter kit and, during Sale-A-Bration, you can choose two free stamp sets to add to this fabulous deal!

For some gift packaging ideas using these cards, see my blog from Saturday.

Gift Packaging with Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes: Pattern and Supplies for Miniature Purse

Yesterday I shared some gift packaging ideas using the Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes, a Sale-A-Bration item that is free with a $50 purchase:

Blog Hop Feb Projects3

I promised patterns, directions and supply lists for each of the projects. Today I have the pattern and directions for the miniature purse. Tomorrow I have some cards that are made with the Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes and Tuesday and Wednesday I will publish directions for the geometric pillow box and rectangular box.

A purse similar to this and the pattern to make it was shared by Dawn Olchefske at a demonstrator gathering last month. Here is the pattern:

8815CAB9-93E6-4044-B91C-856B857A99B1

 The Pool Party card from the Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes was cut at 2" from the edge parallel to the scoreline in the center of the card and the box framelit from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies was used to cut out the purse:

00F964FB-6D9F-475D-8788-DD06199A4695

 I lined up the bottom edge of the die with the edge of the cardstock that I had just trimmed:

15382737-F550-4B87-8429-609C40AF3C47

I added Fast Fuse Adhesive and folded up the purse. To finish it, I tacked the Pool Party 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon under the flap and added the tag and a Metal Rimmed Pearl. To keep the purse closed, I added a dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back side of the flap and let it dry before pressing the flap down. When Multipurpose Liquid Glue is allowed to dry, it becomes a tacky, temporary adhesive and is ideal for keeping flaps closed that you want to be able to open and close repeatedly.

Here are the supplies I used:

Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes

Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies

Pool Party 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon (7")

Shimmer Ribbon Combo Pack (free Sale-A-Bration item), 9" of Bermuda Bay 1/8" ribbon

Label Me Pretty Stamp Set

Bermuda Bay Ink Pad

Metal Rimmed Pearls

Circle Punch, 1 1/4"

Circle Punch, 1 3/8"

Handheld Punch 1/8 " Circle

Pool Party Cardstock

Bermuda Bay Cardstock

Fast Fuse Adhesive

Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Stampin' Trimmer

The Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes (FREE with a $50 purchase!):

Tutti-frutti cards and Envelopes

are a great start for beautiful cards with matching envelopes, but they also make a great base for gift packaging. On Monday, I will share some cards made from this set, but today's blog hop theme is, "anything but a card," so here are some ideas for some boxes made with these cards.

The cards are made from thick cardstock that will make sturdy packages and the matching envelopes are pretty. Imagine the excitement of a friend finding one of these cards and envelopes in their mailbox or receiving a gift packaged in these gorgeous colors and patterns!

The first project is a miniature purse that is just the right size for four nuggets. It is made using the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies.

In the middle is a geometric pillow box with a Citrus Lindor Truffle inside.

On the right is a rectangular box that could contain a gift card with a treat, too. The flower is from the Color Me Happy Stamp Set colored using the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.

Check back tomorrow when I share the directions and a list of supplies for these cute packages.
