Mini Treat Purses

Good Afternoon Everyone!
I just got back from the stores with the new USB.  I first went to Office Depot and bought the USB from there for $10.  Then my soon to be 3 years old daughter wanted the new silly bands. You don't know what they are?  The silly bands are rubber bands in different shapes.  They had pet shapes, food shape, vehicle shapes and many other shapes. Some even glow in the dark.  Why didn't I thought of that?  The kids and some adults went nut about them.  So I stopped by Five & Below and found out that it's also carried computer products and bought a USB for $5.  I should try the dollar store next time. (smile)  But I believe "you got what you paid for". So let see how long this will last.

Here are the mini treat purses.

There are 70 mini purses in this picture. I couldn't fit them all on the scor-pal.  I made more than 80 of them. The sun was so bright that day but I had the hardest time taking the pictures so I placed the mini purses on the scor-pal so I could rotate for a better lighting.

Here are some close up pictures.  I made about 10 purses in each design.

These purses here measured 2 x 5.
and score at 1 1/2", 2 1/2", 4", and 4 1/4".  I punched just a tiny bit of the edge.  I didn't push the card stock all the way into the border punch.

I added glitter in the center of the flower but because of the bright sun light it's impossible to see the glitter.
These purses here (bottom two) measured 2 x 5 1/4.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Have a great Memorial Day weekend to those who celebrate Memorial Day.
