Gift Card Purses
TGIF!!! I just held a last minute workshop at home for a friend who's interested in knowing about the stamping business! Well, she was just right in time for the Promotion Commotion and the 3-Payment Plan being offered by SU this month until the end of March. I set up 3 areas in my home: The Big Shot Zone, Paper Zone and the Assembly Zone - where we will assemble the projects they picked. Well, I'll talk about this set up in a later post.
Anyway, we decided to make these Gift Card Purses which I made so long ago. It's one of my first projects. This time, it's prettier. Lovely cards, Natalie and Alyssa!
