Happy Birthday Purse Cards

 Wanted to do something special for 2 of my daughter's, daughter-in-love and granddaughters 13th  Birthday this year. Decided I'm taking the girls for an overnight shopping spree; and since a 13 year old appreciates money Mckenna received money.Racked my brain and of course looked on the Web for some ideas for a themed card. So excited when I found Qbee's Quest Blog, she had a great purse on there with instructions. Be sure to check it out. The purses I created don't explode I didn't want them to.  Instead of a ribbon handle, I used wire and beads to create the handle. I think they turned out so cute. http://qbeesquest.blogspot.com/2011/01/explosion-box-purse.html
