I love my Kensington purse die from Tonic Studios, but it is small for giving gifts to special female friends. I was inspired by this lovely project with a tutorial by Ruth of the UK Tonic Studios design team to try a larger purse gift bag. I do not have the dies she used, but do have the Top Note Trellis die set and it worked beautifully for this personalized gift giving purse box. I die cut aqua blue and white alternating layers for the front and back on the gift box. I personalized the gift box with a monogram M from the A-N Duo Cap Initials Clarice die set. Here is a picture of the other side of this purse gift box:
I cut off a butterfly from the Branwen Briar Butterfly die to decorate the center of this side. I also used that die on both sides of the inside box as shown here:
The inside box dimensions are 5" x 11" with scoring at 3 1/2" and 7 1/2 and at 1" on both long sides. I folded all the lines and cut a small triangle out of the intersections along the sides. I applied strong two sided tape to hold the box together and attach the decorated sides to the box. I added two handles (cut 1/2" x 11) and some Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops for the final touch.
