Today, I am going to show you how I made this little purse and it holds a gift card inside and I am going to be using the Five in One Envelope Template along with the Dreams Du Jour Stamp Set. And I am using the card stock called Riding Hood Red. And the designer paper is the bella rose so let us get started.
You are going to use your Five in One Envelope Template and I am going to align this up on my Riding Hood Red card stock and I just basically want this outlined here. I will line that up as close to the edge as I can and I am going to take my stylus. This is from Stampin’ Up also. This is a two ended stylus and I am going to use the thicker end. You are just going to outline the score lines here like that, follow it along the template, this is going to be the score line for the purse flap. I am going to go over it one more time to make sure it shows up so I can cut it out. This is your template for your little purse. You go ahead and cut that out which I already did. Just follow along those lines that you scored with your stylus, go ahead, and cut it out. I made the score line where the purse is here which I did with the Five in One Envelope Template. I just moved the card stock down at about an eight on an inch to get like a double flap here in the edge like that. And then I am going to take the red tango punch and I am going to punch two rectangle holes in between those two score lines. I am going to take my word window punch and I am going to put this in as far it goes and then I am going to move it down and punch it again. You might want to punch it a few times because you want the gift card to slide in there. Just do not go too close to the edge because we are going to add the designer paper. Just punch it at however many times. I find that maybe three times, you will punch it.
You are going to use some Riding Hood Red card stock for the handle and this is cut at 1/8” x 7” and then the designer paper is cut at 2 7/8” x 3 ¾” and that is going to go right into the front. Let me show you how I want to do the handle. I am going to use the mini glue dots, peel it off here, slide this handle inside this punch right here, that rectangle punch and I am going to put the glue dot right on the edge of that handle. I am going to pull it out and I am going to flip it over. Drag it over to the other side and do the same thing. So just pull it through here, get another mini glue dot, put on the edge and then I am going to pull that out just to tie a bit so it lines up and then flip it over. That is going to create your little purse handle.
So then for the designer paper, all I am going to do with that is I am going to do the outside edges because now with this word window punch, it is pretty close to the edge. I am going to apply it to the top and the bottom to the edge and then just apply a little tiny bit on the outside edge because you do not want that to be over top of your gift card. Then for the little tag, I will put on this one, I will just close the scallop punch. Using the bella rose designer paper again, punch that out and then I used The Butterfly from the Dreams Du Jour Stamp Set, brad new. I am going to adhere this to my scallop with the Riding Hood Red and then I am going to get the dimensional and adhere this to that. Take two of your dimensionals and this would be at the top so I want to put two of them right on the very top of the edge of the scallop, close my purse and set that right down on the top of there. I will get some Velcro, you just need a little strip of this, stick them together before putting it in the project so I know it is lined up perfectly. Put this on to my scallop part. There we go! It is really cute! Here is the finished one again!
Thanks for stopping by and we will see you later, bye!
