How-To: Petite Purse Ornament

I love the idea of creating a special way to give a monetary gift at the holidays, like this sweet petite purse ornament from Michele Made Me.

As you may or may not know, I have two older girls…well… women would be a more accurate descriptor probably… they are 19 and 24 years of age after all… Each year by request, we give them the gift of moollah. And each year we do the same old thing: we put the money in cards and place the cards in the tree blah blah blah. This year I wanted to do something a little more memorable, a little more special, you know? Hence, the petite purse ornament. Each monogrammed purse is just big enough to stuff with a bundle of crisp bills. I am actually excited to hang these pretties in our tree for the girls. I also plan on using them every year from here on out too. So I made them to last. Won’t that be a sweet new tradition?
