Purse giftcard/money holder

I saw a really cute little purse on "Beth's Paper Cuts" blog.  She made hers using diecuts and it is a flat fold item.  I wanted a little purse that would stand up under the tree or hang on the branches and would hold money or a gift card, sooooo, since I don't have die cuts to use and I am not a very patient person when it comes to working with paper and gluing and such, I set out to make one on my cutter that would work all in one piece...well two when you count the inside piece, but the main purse is just one shot that needs to be folded and can be embellished however you like.  I just wanted to make sure it cut on paper how I thought it would in my head and this is what I came up with.  simple embellishment for the closure.  I kind of like how it turned out and will defiintely make these for the cash and gift card recipients on my list this year! I used one sided paper, and of course double sided paper would work best, or you could just cut two of the single sides and tack them together with runner tape. TFL :)
