Introducing Coin Purse II...

There is a new stitching die in town (well, soon to be in town!) called the Coin Purse II die! You can see more about this die on Nichole Heady's blog, as you'll definitely want to see all of the different ideas/things you can make with it! I've chosen to cut mine out of fabric and cinch it shut to form this drawstring bag.

To cut it from fabric, you'll need to first iron Heat-N-Bond to the back of the fabric to stabilize the fabric for die cutting. You can see Erin's video on the assembly for this bag at Nichole's blog HERE. The bag would be cute as a baby shower favor or wedding favors! To make mine more cinched, I created the bag as the video suggested, then when inserting the ribbon, I just pulled mine tighter to create the ruffled look to the top of the bag.

Drawstring Bag:
STAMPS: none
INK: none
PAPER: none
DIES: Coin Purse II dies, Cover Plate: Bitty Butterflies
OTHER: fabric from Hobby Lobby, Heat-N-Bond, white floss, ribbon - Aqua Mist, enamel dot.

The card to go with it was made with the new Bitty Butterflies dies and stamps and the new Enclosed: Butterfly dies and stamps.

Just like this card, I used vellum and stamped/embossed the wings, then added the teal layer over the top.

Blessed card:
STAMPS: Enclosed: Butterfly
INK: Aqua Mist
PAPER: Mint Julep cardstock, patterned paper - Farmhouse by Crate Paper, vellum
DIES: Cover Plate: Bitty Butterflies, Enclosed: Butterfly
OTHER: enamel dot, white embossing powder.
All of the new products you see here today will be available at Papertrey Ink on the 15th at 10pm EST! Thank you for stopping by! Visit the rest of the team to see more coin purse inspiration today:

Danielle, though I don't always get a chance to leave a comment, I've got to say I see every post. Just want to say you inspire me to be a better crafter for sure. I'm in awe of your craftiness. The bag and card are beautiful as always, thanks for sharing and inspiring.

OH, Danielle, the drawstring bag & card are simply lovely.
I used your sweet bag as my inspiration for the "Create With Us".
Thanks, for the inspiration!
