Designer Challenge Thursday

This week's challenge is by DT member, Kim. She has given us this super cool tic-tac-toe challenge!!! Choose any tic-tac-toe -- diagonal, vertical or horizontal -- and use those three items in your project. Super fun! I chose to use the pattern paper, twine and bling for my project as you can see by the red arrow. :)
For my sweet little treat purse, I used My Creative Time tri-fold card die, ignoring the pre-scored lines and making my own to create this stand up purse.

The petal dies make the perfect embellishment, along with the sweet little tag from the Chunky Jar Accessories dies, and stamp from the Teeny Tag Greetings set.

 Inside is a little zip bag which I hole punched and tied onto the card through the back.

This one has a Velcro dot closure.

While I had the die out, I decided to make a couple more candy treat pouches. I was on a roll! ;)

For this one, I used the flower background stamp from Bloom Where You are Planted and heat embossed on the front. Under the flap, which I secured with repositionable tape so it can be easily opened, I used a sentiment from that same set. I made my own score lines on this one as well, folding where appropriate to fit the candy and close the top flap. And, of course, double-sided paper is prettiest. :)

These are the perfect size for Ghirardelli squares and make a great thank you or thinking of you treat. I secured the candy square to the card with a glue dot. Easy peasy!
