Fabulous Purse-Card Freebies

Aren't these cute?

These adorable purse cards would make great place cards at luncheons, parties, baby and wedding showers. I can see them as door hangers for children's bedrooms. They would also be really useful in the classroom to hang on students' desks. (You could modify the blue ones into wallets for the boys.)

I have two nieces who are going to be new mothers this summer. Wouldn't these make adorable baby announcements? 

These three patterns are absolutely free from MyMemories Software. All you need to do is to click on the link below each picture to get the patterns.

You don't need the MyMemories Suite Digital Scrapbooking Software to make the Purse-Cards, but all of these freebies are MyMemories Suite Compatible. That means that you can now load them directly into your MyMemories Suite Software, and then completely customize them with any paper and embellishments that you have.  

The MyMemories Suite Software provides a powerful set of creative tools and time-saving features for only $39.97. If you are interested, just click here to purchase the MyMemories Suite Software and be sure to enter this code STMMMS2791 at checkout to receive $10 off the software and a $10 gift certificate to use in the online store. (Disclosure: I am compensated for purchases made via the affiliate link in this blog post.)

Here's a quick tutorial on how to make these adorable Purse-Cards.

1.  Print your Purse Card templates on cardstock and gather supplies.  (Recommended supplies: small craft scissors, bone folder, 8-12" of ribbon, stapler, tape or velcro)
TIP: To print your information on the inside create another page with the template in place.  Put all your text and embellishments in (leaving a little room on the edges) and then remove the template right before exporting or printing the inside page on the back of the first.  This will keep from having to worry about if the templates line up exactly when cutting out your card.

2. Use scissors and cut along the outside line.

3.  Fold card at indentations.
TIP: Using a bone folder will help you get crisp edges on your project.
Repeat by folding down top flap.

4. Staple ribbon to both sides of your card on the inside to look like a strap or handle.

5.  Enjoy the finished cards and share.  Don't forget to use your imagination.  The possibilites are endless!

Have fun with these. Leave me a comment if you have any ideas for other uses for these Purse-Cards. 

Hope your summer is going well.
