Purse Gift Bag


I got my mom some earrings for her birthday and wanted a cute way to package them that would be big enough to include the pouch that the earrings came in.  I found the perfect cut file in the Silhouette Online Store:  this Samantha Walker purse!  I cut it at its original size, which was just perfect, about 5 1/2" wide and 9 1/2" tall, including the straps.  The paper is from Teresa Collins Summer Stories collection.  What is awesome about this cut is that I just had to put one 12" x 12" double-sided sheet of paper on my mat, and it cut all of the pieces I needed, resulting in this two-toned purse!
