This sweet purse idea originated in the bright imagination of Carolina Buchting (Carolina's Creative Pad). The key to transitioning this box to a purse was the use of a Bigz Top Note Die.
I zipped Basic Gray card stock and Walk in the Park Designer Paper each through the Big Shot with the Top Note. TIP: They were layered, slightly offset from the top to create a pretty detail. Using a Small Oval Punch, a handle was born!

This cute candy holder offers a window to a burst of color, courtesy of Mike and Ike Tropical Typhoon candies. TIP: They work deliciously well with the color options of Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper. I found it necessary to eat the green candies since I didn't need any Kiwi Kiss in the project.
TIP: The little tag is the part I popped out of the handle for the purse above 🙂

I saw the pencil box idea when I was at Stampin' Up! Regionals in Minneapolis in early April. I dressed my version up in bold colors and think the disk looks a tad like a painter's palette. I thought it was a nifty touch for an art supplies gift. TIP: Wouldn't markers be cool this way, too? Or maybe a fun idea for a Back to School project?
