~Prayer Purse~


This week, the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store designers are on a quest of anything but a standard card.  I always love when i’m challenged.  Now this project is not new to me.  I’ve made several of these little prayer purses over the last few years.  Every time I share them I get a great response.


To start with, I used the basic instructions of the “Bag in a Box” tutorial on   I adjust mine so that the box is 3.5″ x 1″ and 1″ deep.  From there, you’ll adjust the bag portion to follow.  Mine is 3.5′ wide by 3.5″ tall.


I create scripture cards for the inside (6 shown here, but big enough for 12-15), and added a journaling spot on the back of each card.  Stamp Simply Ribbon Store has a wide variety of scripture sets.


I did some sponging and piercing on the brown cardstock to make it look a bit leathery.  I’m in love with the Craft Consortium woodgrain paper (12 x 12 used here).


It’s a sturdy little purse and makes a great gift.
