I made a tote like this last Mother's day and it's the first thing I thought of when I bought the new Friends 'til the End stamp set. I love how this little tote turned out and it holds 3- 5 cards (unless your cards are really layered and lumpy) with envelopes. I gave a version of this tote to my mother last year with a few cards, envelopes and a gift card tucked inside. The creator of this tote pattern is Leslie Miller and you can find instructions on her blog, Running with Scissors.
Supplies by Papertrey Ink. Here's what I used: White, Raspberry Fizz and New Leaf cardstock, Friends 'til the End stamp set, True Black, Raspberry Fizz and Landscape Pallette Ink, New Leaf grosgrain ribbon, White vintage button, Scor Tape. I also used the Word Window Punch from SU.
