Once you've knit one, you just might have to make more. Not only do these little flat purses work well for business cards, but they are also perfect for special jewelry, perhaps a bride's special wedding-day treasures, as the gift "box" for any small and lovely gift. A beautiful pair of earrings, an anniversary ring . . . I can even imagine one or two of the finest chocolates carefully wrapped in painted foil.
Have fun thinking up gifts for these lovely gift purses.
