Girl Tools & Purses

For those of you who have followed me for a while, you know my friend Lorri Heiling that I took to convention on a Popsicle stick last summer (and Nancy Riley too) because her son was getting married and she couldn't go. That was fun!

Lorri has released her first tutorial, the Tool Box/ Flower Box Tutorial.
So I bought her tutorial and made my own tool box...the Girls Tool Box

Super easy and so tiny. It fits in the palm of your hand and is perfect gift card size!

Stampin' Up! Tool Box, Punch Tool Box, whatever you want to call's cute!
You can get a pattern for yourself HERE.
Although that is super cute, that really wasn't what I asked you to come back today and see. I want you to see what she did to her Purse-onally Perfect Purses. She added the perfect accessory for the Hawaiian Tropics...SUNGLASSES! Oh how I wish I had come up with that idea, but I am happy to celebrate her genius!
Now I KNOW you all want sunglasses for your purses, right??? She has the .pdf all ready for you with 5 pair of sunglasses on one page, ready to print on cardstock. You can find it on her blog, Confessions of a Stamping Addict.

Here is her Hawaiian purse complete with the cards she and her group made this week.

Lorri also shared with me two more purses she made for her sons teachers.

She stuffed them with little gifts and a gift card and wrapped them in Stampin' Up! bags for a darling presentation. Wouldn't it just make your day if someone handed you one?! So cute!
Once again, the Purse can be found HERE.
The Sunglasses and the Tool Box Tutorial can be found HERE.
Thank you Lorri for sharing your work with all of us! Love ya and can't wait to see you this year at convention!
