Below are the purses she bought / Mine are the pink and brown polka dot ones: (they have Hershey's Nuggets in them)

They looked so cute in Christmas colors, I thought "These would look adorable in baby shower colors and would make the perfect favor!"

I made you a free template of the purses so you can easily make them too! - which you can print here.

Simply print onto cute scrapbook paper to match the baby shower colors or theme.

Then cut them out and fold according to the lines (I give complete instructions on the print out template.)

Use a little double-stick tape to keep everything nice and snug, add a ribbon handle and you are good to go!

I love the cute little button that they used! I didn't have any buttons on hand so I added a little pom pom to mine.

If you use a button, you could always attach a cute baby shower favor tag that says "Cute As A Button!"
