Coco Chanel Inspired Birthday Card & Purse

"A girl should be two things: CLASSY and FABULOUS." ~ Coco Chanel

My BFF (Sindy) LOVESSSSSS Chanel purses!  She loves them sooooo much she owns seven (yes SEVEN) of them.  I made one mini Chanel inspired mini purse for her on her birthday and she is putting it on display in a plastic box.  I also love Chanel, but I can’t afford one, but I can afford this one… LoL.  So, what do you give someone who has everything?  A mini paper Chanel inspired Petite Purse.  =)  To make the C’s I punched the paper with the 3/8 cirlce punch from the Punch Pack and then punched around it using the 3/4 punch.  I cut the sides out with scissors and crossed them together.

Sindy’s favorite color is black and last year I began a tradition of making her black & white cards for her birthday.  She likes butterflies, but I love them and that is why I punched out three of them.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY SINDY!

MaggieMade Tip:  Do you cringe with the thought of throwing out a project that didn’t come out the way you envsioned?  I know I do!  Instead of using permanent tape right away, invest in repositional tape.  This way, if you don’t like it, there is no need to throw it out.  In the long run, it saves you money and keep you from throwing out perfectly good paper.
