Custom Monogramed Paper Purse

This is one of the adorable purses from the Forever Young Cricut  cartridge.

It is one of the plain ones with no decoration in the front, and I custom placed a B from the Gypsy font cartridge inside.  Note that this is the shadow version of that type of font so that it was a bit less intricate to cut.

I punched holes in the sides to add my ribbon.

If you'd like detailed instruction on how to line up the letter properly I can make another similar design on video, let me know! 

Wouldn't something like this make adorable party favors?

I just found your blog and have become a follower. I have this cart but haven't even opened it yet. I think your handbag is so cute and really like the monogram on the front. I also really like your blog.

Hi there,
I tried cutting the purse out but it came out too small. What size did you cut your's out? and what type of paper did you use. Sorry for all the questions, I'm new to this, just mostly scrapped :o)
