Love the different collections, the papers are so pretty and they make beautiful projects -Allison Almeida
Create a project you can give as a gift or sell at a craft fair! This purse is so versatile you can use it as a notelet holder or as add a wow factor and use it as an envelope to give a hand delivered card in! The measurements are different but the process is the same, follow this step by step tutorial to create both options! Have the purse ready to decorate in 20 mins!
Directions for the Notelet Holder (This is wide enough to include 6 A2 envelopes and cards)
Step 1 Using paper from the paper pad cut a piece of paper 6½" x 11".
TOP TIP Cut and adhere another piece of paper to the back for a contrasting effect.
Step 2 Score along the 11" side of the paper at ¾", 5¼", 6" and 10½"
Step 3 Turn the paper around and score at ¾"
Step 4 Cut between the score lines at either and in the centre as in the picture above.
Step 5 Using a circle punch or die cut a semi circle from the centre of the front of the purse.
Step 6 Fold along all the score lines and adhere the base and side of the purse.
Step 7 Cut two strips 10" x 1" for the handles and adhere to the purse.
TOP TIP If you have adhered a contrasting piece of paper for the inner of the purse then do the same here for the handles.
Step 9 Make 6 notelets from the paper pad and place inside the purse with 6 envelopes.
