Hello Stampers! Happy Tutorial Tuesday! I have this neat card purse to show you today. I came across it while blog hopping on one of my sideline's blogs, at dianaball-seitz.com. She didn't really have detailed directions, so I played around and came up with my own! Thanks Diana for the idea!
Isn't this the cutest thing??? Here's how to make it:
1 - Start off with a card size piece of paper, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2". You will also need a large scallop circle or plain circle. I used the scallop circle die with my Big Shot! Oh how I love my Big Shot! The designer series paper I used was Rockabilly Specialty! You can see a little bit of the glare from the cherries because the paper is textured! Too cool!
2 - Find the center of your circle (mine was 2 1/4") and score a line 1/8" on either side. My scores were at 2 1/8" and 2 3/8". Punch two holes for the ribbon handle to go through. I used the 1/8" hole punch.
3 - Fold your paper in half as you would for a card. Measure in 1" from each side along the open edge. Draw lines from the 1" mark down to the bottom corners. Click on my pic to see the lines that I drew. Cut on these lines.
4 - After inserting a 12" piece of ribbon into the holes in the circle and tying a knot in both ends, I used Tombow glue to attach the circle to the outside, back of the purse. This pic is a view of the inside of the purse with the circle attached to the back.
After your glue dries, embellish your purse as desired!
Here is a view of my purse with a Gharidelli chocolate attached! Enjoy!
Let me know if you have any questions!
Happy Stampin' and TTFN!
