Paper Purse and a set of 4 cards

This is the project for the class in 2 weeks.
The purse is made from one 12 by 12" piece of DSP.  The four cards are fairly simple, and rather than put sentiments on the front, 4 different sentiments (4 of each) were stamped on Whisper White, punched with the Word Window Punch and included in the purse in a plastic bag.

The body of the purse is made using one 12 by 12" DSP (English Garden).  I used the design created by Connie and Mary.

  • Cut one piece of DSP to 7 x 11, with 11″ at top of Simply Score Tool, score at 4-1/2 & 6-1/2.  Cut two pieces of DSP to 2 x 6, score at 3/4 and 5-3/8 on each.
  • With 7″ at top of large piece and using a pencil, make a tick mark at 1-1/4 & 5-3/4 on both ends.  Score from the tick mark to the first score line, repeat on other side to form a triangle as shown.  Fold on all score lines
  • Adhere the 3/4″ tab on the side pieces to the base as shown.

  • Fold in angled sides.  Adhere sides pieces to tabs along the scored seams.  Fold the top tab over inside the purse to help hold the sides in place.
 I used retired brads to attach the deco label and to strengthen the handles.

  • Decorate and embellish as desired.  I used the Deco Label Framelit for the purse “latch”.  The handle is 1 x 11 Old Olive, the trim is 1/2 x 11 Old Olive (needed two pieces).

I made a large flower using the retired Fun Flower die; a smaller rose using the Flower Bunch Punch, and a rolled rose using the Spiral Flower die.
