Goody Bag

Don't you love this little purse? It's actually a nugget box made with the Matchbox Die for the Big Shot disguised as a purse...and it has chocolate inside! Does it get any better than that? What a perfect little treat for Mother's Day. :)

I saw this purse on Amanda Coughlin's blog and knew I had to make one.
Here you can see the yummy treats inside!

I'd like to make one of these for my mom for Mother's Day, but she doesn't eat many sweets since she is diabetic. I think I'll make a little set of coordinating notecards to fit inside.

And don't forget, today is BLOG CANDY day! Leave a comment on this post to enter my drawing for this week. For more information about what I am giving away, click here. I will be choosing one winner at 6:30a.m. Saturday morning using Random. org. Good luck!

So cute as always! Are you trying to get me to buy this die b/c you know that means I have to upgrade my die cut machine...but these projects are too cute. Nothing more perfectly girly than a purse that can hold chocolates!!! Got to have our priorities :)
