Parisian Purse - Scor-Pal May Arts

Welcome to my spot on the Scor-Pal and May Arts Blog Hop!



You should have come to me from Lalo IK's blog.
If not then go back to either the Scor-Pal blog or the May Arts blog for all the details and so you don't miss a single spot.

For my project I decided to make a Paris themed purse designed to hold notecards.



Project Recipe:
Tools - Scor-Pal, and Scor-Mat Adhesive - Scor-Tape and Hot Glue
Stamps - Moulin Rouge Tilda
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Countryside Villa by The Paper Studio
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Die Cuts - Oval and Beaded Oval by Spellbinders
Accents - The Paper Studio
Hinge - Making Memories
Fabric Brad - The Paper Studio
Ribbons/Trim - Eyelet Trim, Black and White Chevron Wired all May Arts



Here you can see the items used in this project.


The base of the purse is made from black card stock measuring 12" by 6" scored at 4" and 8" along the 12" side.



For the pockets inside you start with a piece of card stock 10" by 4"
On the 10" side score at 1", 2", 8" and 9"
On the 4" side score at 1" and 2"
Burnish all folds



Decorate the front as wished.
Trim the corner flaps as in the photo and add Scor-Tape as in the photo to create the pocket.



Decorate the inside panels of the purse before adding the pockets that will hold the cards



Punched both sides of 12" by 1 3/4" strips of cardstock to create the handles.
Use Scor-Tape to attach to the inside panels of the purse.



Decorate the handle and purse edge as you desire.



Here you can see the double pockets inside the purse.


This flower was created from a 12" length of eyelet trim that was gathered along the edge with a simple running stitch and then the ends stitched together once gathered.
It was topped with a fabric brad



The completed purse.
A metal hinge was used as the fastener on the top. The hinge was attached with brads on one side and a magnet attached to the front inside top so that the hinge would attach and hold the purse closed.

The following are just close ups of the decoration.
