Personalized Coin Purses & Possibilities

Welcome to the final day of the Papertrey Ink March countdown and the second design team group post day. Today's group post is focused on the Coin Purse and Coin Purse Pockets Dies.  Erin Lincoln has done a stellar job with this creative die collection!  I was completely surprised by how easy the coin purse assembly was.  And the end results are just too cute for words!  

Here's how I was inspired to use them...
My projects for today center around a color-blocked theme.  The coin purse and coordinating tag use a color combo of melon berry and raspberry fizz, in both felt and cardstock.
First up, lets take a look at the color-blocked coin purse... or should I say wristlet.  The addition of a twill ribbon loop makes it possible for a little hand to be inserted.  Here's How: The color-blocked look was achieved by adding an additional partial layer into place, on the bottom edge, and then stitched as you normally would.
Next, a coordinating tag to finish off the ensemble.  Die cut using the new Tag Sale #10 die and topped with twill ribbon.
A white shimmer cardstock star (die cut using the Sketched Stars die collection), a white button, melon berry floss and a sentiment (from Birthday Classics: March, soon to be released) to finish things off.
Here's a non-traditional use of the new dies.  
I've used the outer edges of the coin purse die cuts (cut from spring moss, Hawaiian shores and aqua mist cardstock) to layer a fun color-blocked top edge.

Well, that's all I've got for you today. Just remember...  everything you've seen peek of today will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning March 15th
