Goody Box Purses and Template





Hi Everyone!! Well I've been working on these goody box purses for the past few days. Today is the last day that the Key Club will be meeting so I decided to create these goody boxes for the members.



The kids worked so hard this year helping out the community. . .aside from their regular volunteer efforts, they volunteered for the Breast Cancer Run, the MS run, Rose Parade Float, and other various community charities and fund raising. I felt they deserve a little appreciation for their efforts.


My daughter will be president next year and she and I came up with the idea of giving the goody boxes to the members. She wants to be a good president and during her year in a leading position, she wants to recognize the members efforts more than they typically would have. The kids really don't get recognized much for their volunteer efforts individually. . . .they're seen as a group or club.


This was an easy goody box purse to create. Because I had to make 50 of them, I needed something that I could do relatively quickly. I had posted the template a few days ago on Card Inspired. Other than cutting out the boxes, the box is really easy to put together.



The blue ones are for the boys and obviously, I couldn't add the handles to look like a purse but the pink ones are for the girls so I added the ribbon handles so they would look more like a purse.



Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

They are fantastic Maria! I always love to go that little extra mile to thank people too! Volunteering is a difficult job sometimes. It's worth it to see a smile on someones face though. I'm sure your daughter will make a wonderful President next year!
