Fellow demonstrator and friend, Vicki Spicer gave me a gift before November’s OnStage event – a cute Mini Clutch Bag with some treats inside. I shared it on on November 8th.
She got the idea from Angelina Clark at Intatwyne Designs. (Thanks Vicki and Angelina!) I was intrigued by this bag AND had requests for showing 3-D packaging to hold gift cards. So I adapted the measurements and came up with an even smaller version. And isn’t that handle at the top stinkin’ adorable!?
I just showed live on YouTube about an hour ago step-by-step directions for creating this adorable Christmas-themed petite clutch bag using the Everything Essential Stamp Set, ‘Tis the Season Designer Paper, Stitched Shapes Dies, and some gold accenting. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can get updates when I share and go live).

WHISPER WHITE LEAVING…BASIC WHITE COMING
News from SU…“We are sad to announce that the supplier’s mill producing our Whisper White cardstock has permanently closed due to impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though this decision was out of our hands, rest assured that we jumped right into action to find the best replacement paper possible. We have dedicated many hours to source and test alternative cardstock options from several suppliers to find the perfect fit that still maintains the Stampin’ Up! quality you know and trust. And we are happy to share that we have found a winner for our new cardstock, Basic White! Our new Basic White products will become available to purchase as soon as we have them in stock. It’s always hard to say goodbye, but we are excited about the new Basic White product line and we encourage you to try it out!” Click here for a downloadable flyer.
