This is a gift card or money holder that I created in the shape of a purse. I had a chipboard cut-out that I used as a template for the purse.

Some very talented ladies who are Stampin' Up Demonstrators devised a way to make these baskets using the Scalloped square die and paper. (One of them is Jackie Topa, and I know there are many more out there whose names I do not have.) Most of the people I have seen have been using it to make purses or bags out of fabric. Since my sewing machine isn't handy, I am grateful to be able to do the same with paper. This is fun and easy and can be very colorful! I hope to make more of these for Easter gifts for friends.

After creating the felt flower pins, I thought it might be fun to create a valentine heart pin. I used the sparkly felt and added a red corduroy brad (from Stampin' Up) to the center. I'm all set for Valentine's Day!
I used some Sizzix heart dies to cut out the felt. (In fact, the dies are from quite some time ago, so I don't even know if they are still available) But there are other heart dies available from Stampin' Up, and of course, the trusty trace and cut out method as well.
