ATS Wednesday Challenge: Circle Inchies

Hello! Happy Wednesday! The ATS Challenge for today is to use Circle Inchies. "Inchies" are all over recently, so Jen's challenge to us was to use 1" circles instead of the usual 1" squares.

It just so happens that many of the images in the new set by AmyR Stamps, Amy's Boutique, are perfect for inchies! I went with the shopping theme and created a gift card holder. I saw this particular template last year on this post at Nancy Morgan's blog, Paper Smiles. I've used it many times since then!

This is pretty self-explanatory, so I'll just point out a couple things. Both the sentiment and the purse were punched out with a 1" circle punch. The purse was paper pieced. The ribbon is tied all the way around the back of the card and across the top flap. The circle is attached to the ribbon with a glue dot; the whole thing simply slides off the top without being untied.

If you'd like to play along, use keyword ATSDTC17 when uploading to a gallery. You can see other samples of challege projects in the ATS Challenge Gallery HERE. All the Wednesday Challenges are listed on this thread -- play along at any time!

Well, I have a lot to do around the house -- better get going!! Thanks so much for stopping by -- have a fantastic day! :)
