3x3 Purse Tutorial

Hello Hivers,
I have gotten lots of request to give a tutorial on how to make this Note Card Purse.
I don't have step by step pictures to show you......sorry. It is very simple and you should understand how to put it together from the directions.....Here we go.

You will need:

--Inside Pockets--
2 pieces of card stock--5 1/4" x 3 3/4"
**score at 1/2" and 1" on both short ends and one long end.

1 piece of card stock--7 1/2" x 3 1/2"
**score at 3 1/4" flip and repeat on opposite end.

--Purse Flap--
Cut out one Stampin' Up! Top Note out of card stock.
**cover with VersaMark ink and then cover with Clear Embossing Powder.

Use your Bone Folder and make lines to create a design that resembles alligator skin. Be sure to press hard when making your lines...blow off excess powder. Heat emboss.

Apply sticky strip to 1/2 of the back of the Top Note. Bend as if you were going to fold in half to find center and punch 2 holes for ribbon to make your strap. Tie a knot on each end of ribbon after inserted through the holes.

Apply sticky strip to outside edge on all sides scored on Inside Pockets. Attach to inside of purse, one on each side.

Attach top not to the back of purse. Punch hole in the Top Note above the center point and apply a Designer brad. Apply Velcro dot on back of brad and adhere to front of purse.

Be sure to design your purse before you put anything together. The cards that will fit inside should be cut at 6x3 and scored at 3.


*Note: my purse and cards are smaller. These note cards are no longer available so I made the tutorial for 3x3 cards.

Until next time.....
