Monogram Purse Box with Matching Cards and Envelopes

Today, I want to share with you my design project for Creative Critterz Imaginations Blog.
I just bought the new Theresa Collin’s Baby Boutique Imagine Cartridge and I could not be happier! It is a must buy!

I love monograms and thought it would be fun to make a cute gift set for my mother-in-law. Her last name starts with a K and lucky for me, this cartridge comes with an entire alphabet. Yahoo!

The purse is from the Forever Young cartridge and is on page 70. It is cut at fit-to-page and flood filled with paper from the Baby Boutique cartridge. The monogram is on page 20 and cut at 2.8 inches. I did not cut the layers, but next time I will! I added a couple of black rhinestones, ribbon and pop dotted the monogram.

As part of the gift, I plan to include 4 cards with matching envelopes. Too cute!
The cards measure 3 inches x 3 inches. I flood filled a 2.9 inch square and a 2.8 inch square with papers to match. Lastly, I added ribbon and pop dotted a 2.5 inch monogram with black rhinestones to each card.

Just in case you want to make your own 3 x 3 inch envelopes and liners, the measurements are below. For additional assembly information you may want to view my video on how to make envelopes and liners using both the original Scor-Pal and the Martha Stewart Score Board.

Cut one piece of paper 7-7/8 x 5-1/4 inches. With 4-1/4 inch side going along the top on the board…score each side at the one inch mark. Turn paper so the 7-7/8 inch side is along the top and score at 2 and 5-1/4 inches. Cut one piece of paper 3 x 4 inches for the liner. I rounded all corners.
