March Creative Club Project - Purse and Card

March’s Creative Club project will be this fun purse that can be used as a gift bag or even as an Easter basket. We will also be making a matching card. To find out more about my monthly non-commit Creative Club, click here. You do not need to be local to participate. I have members all over the country! (Hi ladies!)

The template for this cute purse was created by Bridget Louw and can be found here. I came across it on the Making Memories website and knew it would be perfect for March’s club project. The template is a bit rough but I was able to redraw it in Adobe Illustrator and bring it into my new SCAL software so I could cut it on my Cricut. I believe that Becky Roberts also has a purse template that looks very similar.
The purse has a cute little pocket on the front where you can stick a gift card, a note, or another small gift.
This is the matching card that we will also be making. It uses the March Stamp of the Month called A Little Everything. It is a great set for any card maker! If you like these projects, click here for more details on my super fun club! Contact me at for more information, to sign up for next month’s class, or to order your own club kit(s). Next month’s Club will meet at 7pm on Thursday, March 11th. Please contact me no later than March 3rd if you would like to join us or order a kit. (That will give me enough time to order the supplies and prep your kit.)
