Patty Bennett inspired me after seeing her Carousel Note Purse to make one of these -However - the bad news was I didn't have the Carousel Note Cards - BUT I did have the Mini Monogram Font for my Cricut that has a scallop on it, so I set it at 5.5 and then used my Layer Ease to layer it and make it big enough. Since my Carousel Note only measured to be 5.75", I had to be a little creative and change the measurements. I also didn't have the envelopes for the Carousel Notes, so I had to use the Medium Square envelopes which measure 5.5"x5.5" by Stampin' Up!.
My friend Holly, challenged me to make something using the Chipboard and Chunky Glitter from the Spring Occasions Mini I hadn't cracked open yet.
I had a BUNCH of left over Rub Ons laying around, I thought I would use up too - I have SO much clutter. :)
You can find the directions to the Carousel Note Purse on Jan Tink's blog.
Like I said before, my measurements are a bit different and I added pictures! As I was making it, I thought I should have a COMPLETED project for once instead of just leaving it blank.
