She wanted a special gift for a friend...I hope she likes what I have come up with!....I plan on making similar pieces for my ETSY shop in the next few days check back !!. This set was made with a VINTAGE Hanky, which I applied to a repurposed QK tin...made into a purse/card holder. ....Extra pieces of the hanky were used for the belly-band. The handle was made with some coordinating ribbons...vintage & new....tied by punching thru the tin with my Crop-a-dile...yummy, like butter!

The sweet little matching set of 3 x 3 noties were wonder-undered onto card stock, and handstamped with assorted sentiments.
