Easter Purse Tutorial


Trim off sides evenly and round the bottom corners of purse

Greetings everyone, I just couldn't resist creating another fun Spring purse design.  I have used this same technique for Christmas, Valentines, Halloween and now Easter.

Take your 8 1/2" X 11" piece of card stock and score in half then fold over.  Using a cutting mat with printed rule take a rotary cutter and ruler to cut off one side of the card.  Use the cut piece as your template to trim off the other side so each side matches.  Now you almost  have a purse shape, with scissors trim off the bottom corners to give the purse rounded edges.   Emboss with Polka Dot folder.

The Purse handle is created using the two largest Classic Oval die together and attached to back of card. (I used two white and one pink oval together so it was very stiff.

Using the Spellbinders Heartfelt Creations die attach pink piece to front of card.

Die cut Memory Box Lavish Branch in green card stock trim in half and attach to both sides of card at bottom.  Add the Delicate Blossoms and Martha Stewart Double Monarch Butterfly  and you are done.

When complete the card will stand upright.

Materials:
Spellbinders Heartfelt Creations Layered Elegant Swirl
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals Large  (3¾ x 2¾″ & 3 x 2¼″) Handle
Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder  Front of purse )
Memory Box  Lavish Branch & Delicate Blossoms
Martha Stewart Double Monarch Butterfly
White Half Pearls - Michaels Recollections Brand
Rotary Cutter
Cutting mat with printer ruler (Martha Stewart)
Glue, scissors, ruler
