Sewing Kit - instructions:

Oops I didn't realize Lisa wanted me to post the instructions. So here goes - and I did go ahead and add a few other kit "faces" so you can get your creative juices flowing!

The kits are all constructed the same - simply decorated differently on the front. Here are the instructions for the blue/with brown flower kit:
Bashful Blue card stock from the Soft Subtle collection
Bigz Top Note Stampin' Up exclusive Sizzix die
Scallop hand punch or the Circles, Scallop #2 die by Sizzix as the small scallop is almost exactly the same size
flowers were cut on my Cricut using the "Basic George" cartridge. Sizes are 1" and 1.5"
cut one 2.75 x .254" strip of coordinating cardstock (emboss if desired)
one - brad for closure
one - purchased pocketbook sewing kit
Simply place your cardstock in your Sizzix die cutting tool and cut a Top Note. Stamp the design and/or sentiment of your choice on the right side of the Top Note. Score the note in the middle of the shorter length from peak to peak. Fold in half and press fold with your bone folder. Open the Top Note and lay your sewing kit on the inside right. Glue the 2.75 x .25" strip of paper down vertically so that your sewing kit can easily slip in and out but it will not be able to slip out the top or bottom. Close the Top Note and punch a small hole in the very center of the point. This is where you will place your brad for closure.

Please check out Lisa's great blog and while you are at it leave her some feedback on all her great work!!

Aren't you a sweetheart. These are fabulous! I never even thought about that set. Puns from the past. It's perfect for that. Love the project and I do love that bashful blue.
Thanks for providing so much inspiration.
You've got that craft mojo.
