nugget purse tutorial 3Have you thought of making favors for the guests at your National Scrapbooking Day event? You know, like you might give at weddings or showers.

We have a video below to show you how to make these cute little purse favors or ‘Nugget Purses’ by Angie Kennedy Juda. Angie is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and owner of Chic n’ Scratch.

I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them and, with National Scrapbooking Day just around the corner, thought they’d make great little gifts for all the wonderful ladies who will attend.

If there are too many people attending your event to make them all yourself, then you could take a few minutes out of your day to make them together, and provide the little treat for inside.

Use your scrapbooking papers and cardstock, and ribbons, stamps and brads from your scrapbooking stash.

We’ve included the dimensions below, so you can watch the video without worrying if you miss one of them.

Dimensions for the Nugget Purse.


This gives you an idea of the size of the purse. That’s a punch beside it … albeit a very large punch!

The dimensions, in inches, are as follows:

  • Red cardstock – 5 x 1 1/2; score at 1 1/2, 2 1/2 & 4
  • Black cardstock – 5 1/8 x 1/4
  • Ribbon – you want it long enough to be able to tie knots in the back, but short enough for it to stand up and not fall over when finished
Color combination ideas

Black and red is a wonderful, classic color combination. I love blues and they go with just about any other color. Here are some more:

  • white purse, chocolate ink for the stamping, center band and ribbon, blue flower
  • chocolate is great with pink, too
  • blue contrasts beautifully with orange
  • try green card with blue ‘accessories’
  • Spring yellow and green with chocolate

Use a colorwheel for more great color combinations.

You could also use heavyweight patterned papers with a plain cardstock round the middle. Black would go well with most colors.

Plan to include these cute little purses at your next National Scrapbooking Day event, scrapbook class or crop.

Sharing your National Scrapbooking Day is an earlier article we wrote in which we encourage scrapbookers to take time to talk to an elderly relative or neighbor about their photographs and memories, and suggest you make a scrapbook for them. You will be blessed for sharing your time, and pass a memorable couple of hours.
