Personalized Coin Purses and Possibilites...

Hey there!  I am back with another day of release fun over at Papertrey Ink.  Today's group post is all about the adorable new Coin Purse and Coin Purse pockets dies.  I made up a fun little coin purse for my 9 year old.  I think she is going to love it!

I pulled out some Harvest Gold, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shore and Simply Chartreuse Felts and got  to work.
ETA: I thought this was Lemon Tart Felt but I was mistaken.  It is actually Harvest Gold.  Sorry about that!

I personalized this coin purse by using the die a little different than intended.  I wanted it to have all 4 round corners, so I cut the felt like this....


I just flipped it around and washi taped it down to make a different edge.  The holes lined up perfectly  and it was super easy.  Another fun die that comes included is a slotted die, so you can add your own zipper.  I have to be honest....I panicked slightly but when I saw how easy it was, I had to give it a shot.  And it was EASY!  It works best if you can find a 4" zipper to fit right in place, but I couldn't find one.  I got a 7" zipper and then measured how much I would need.  I took my sewing machine and ran a straight stitch back and forth over the zipper, to make a zipper stop.  It's so easy

I added in the pocket on the front, after stitching some felt flowers down.  Again?  Easy!  Love how these dies work!

Next, I made a matching tag....

I used the new Tag Sale #10 with this adorable little embossed frame.  The "to and from" stamp, came from the Tiny Treats: Valentines set.   I added in another felt flower so they would coordinate for a gift.

And last, I packaged it up in a glassine bag and finished it off with the tag....

These dies are so fun for making coin purses, but have lots of fun possibilities for cards too.  I used the full coin purse die to make this little card.  I decorated the front using the arrow die from Monthly Moments: March and then some flowers from the adorable new set called, Just Smile.
