Heart Gift Purses
These cute gift hearts were so fun to do and I couldn't believe that the idea came so easy to mind. The heart template came from a valentines candy box that I traced on cardboard. There were four hearts there were cut out of cardboard. I painted all four sides with red and pink paint. My favorite method is sponge painting because it makes it dimension. I cut strips of cardboard for the sides of the gift purses and made handles as well. I used hot glue to attach the sides to the purses till they were dry. I used hot glue to attach the faceted beads on the sides and the handles of the purses. Then I used regular craft glue to shake the irredescent glitter on the top of the hearts. I wrapped cellophane around the heart purses and wrapped with red and pink curly ribbon.
