Valentine’s Day Purse with Heat Embossed Details

Valentine's Day Purse Heat Embossed 3D Gift1Back by popular demand! After the rave reviews of my Sparty Purse (Click here for Instructions), I resolved to use this template again to hold a special Valentine’s Day surprise for my little sister.  Happy Valentine’s Day, Makayla!
