Wedding Shower Favor

After much discussion about cakes, boxes, purses, cone etc, my neighbor settled on this little purse for her wedding shower favor. The little purse box is a Lauren Meader template. The bride is in white, of course, and her maids are wearing a color called merlot. SU's Cherry Cobbler was a near perfect match. So the box is Whisper White. I embossed the lid with the Damask embossing folder. Used a strip of the red atop the handle and Bridal Brads from Mike's to secure the handle. An EK Success punch was used for the scallop trim and Spellbinders circles and scalloped circles for the medallion on the front which was stamped with Cherry Cobbler. The rose was made from the Sizzix 3D rose and leaves were a Fiskar's punch. I think they came out looking beautifully elegant. My friend will fill them with chocolates......all 26 of them!!! Done!

Can you tell me which template you used? I'm looking through Lauren Meader's templates and can't seem to find the one for this purse. Thanks!
