I have a lot of information to give you today, so I'm going to jump right to my tutorial on how I prepared this darling note-card purse. I had saved a picture of it and asked all my Late Night Stamper friends if they new who had created it. Nobody new, but I got tons of e-mail asking me how to make it. I finally found the picture on our Demonstrator Stampin' Connection web site, went to her (Amy Kircher's) blog, but no instructions included. So, I don't know how Amy made hers but this is how I made the following purse (because there are so many pictures, they all small, please right-click to enlarge in new window):
|Side view showing note-card box.|
12" x 6" Cardstock5 ½" x 7 ½" Matching Cardstock
2 Pieces of 6" x 4" Designer Series Paper
4 or 5 Brads
2 Pieces of 10 ½" of Ribbon
Adorning Accents Edgelits Die
Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders
Simply Scoring Tool
Pencil & Ruler
1. Cut cardstock for purse base at 12" x 6".
2. Score at 5 ½" and 6 ½"on 12" length.
5. Cut off pieces where you have drawn the lines (this makes the sides on the front and
back of your purse shorter at bottom in “V” shape.
|6. Use Adorning Accents Edgelit on top and bottom (front and back).|
|7. Use Adorning Accents Embossing Folder underneath the Edgelit cuts.|
8. Cut 2 pieces of 6" x 4" Designer Series Paper.
9. Run both pieces through the big shot using the Adorning Accents Edgelits Die on top and bottom.
|10. Adhere Designer Series Paper to the purse on front and back (centering).|
|and then turn over and trim the sides.|
|12. Use Piercing tool to attach the two 10 ½" pieces of ribbon to the top front and back of the purse, using the four brads. (I folded the purse together so I could pierce both sides at the same time so they would line up)|
14. Score box piece on long side (7 ½") at 1" and 4 ½".
15. Turn to short side (5 ½") on Simply Scoring Tool and score at 3 ¼" and 4 ¼".
|18. Use a strip of Sticky Tape at bottom of box and both long sides to adhere box to the inside of your purse (centering).|
|Center (right and left) on inside center score lines.|
|Finished note-card purse.|
