Our challenge was to create a love note box or treat box for Valentine’s Day.
Be sure to visit CCR to see all of the great projects AND enter our challenge.
This is the prize, the Sew Easy Tool and Fiber Card.

So this is what I came up with.
cricut tags purse note card holder by melin for CCRDT-500
 This super cute little Purse – Note Card Holder.


cricut tags purse with note cards by melin2-500
Here is another picture of the cards laid out in front.

This is a shot of what the cards look like tucked away inside the little purse.


I created the Purse from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More Cricut Cartridge. I used some Basic Grey Patterned Paper and used the Fit to Page Function. It cut the purse out at 7”.

The note cards are 3'” high by 2 15/16 wide. Just shy of 3 x 3. The width at the top of the purse is just a little too narrow to comfortably fit the 3x3 cards.

I assembled the purse and added a pretty vintagey looking button.

For the seven note cards, I used various punches to decorate the fronts. But you can always use your Cricut to decorate them any way you like.

On the insides, I created small Word Art Printable Stamps with some scriptures of love. I am going to keep this by my work area so I will be reminded of how much the Lord loves us :-)

Romans 12:9-13

Great project! Thanks for sharing it. And thank you for the printable love scriptures. I love the LOrd, too, but am not good at thinking of ways to use scripture in my projects. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love your cute purse and note cards! I really enjoy making 3 x 3 cards (2 15/16!) and I got the Bags, Tags, Boxes cartridge free with my gypsy, so now I'm going to try it out!
