I like to make dimensional paper projects. Here is a purse shape gift box. It is very easy to make and addictive. I have made six purse already.
I liked Wonky Line Background stamp before I discovered how easy it is to spice up the plain cardstock with it. Now I love this stamp. It is perfect for paper purse :)
Pattern is stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Copper Kettle EP. It looks really pretty on top of the Burgundy CS.
I stamped small flower from Beautiful Friendship stamp set two times with Tuxedo Black ink, colored them with markers and fussy cut. One flower is popped up on top of another with foam tape.
To hide the magnet which keeps the purse closed I adhered a Silver Diamond Mesh Flower on top of it. I colored it with orange marker. To the center of the flower I added SNS Dimensional Glue and Sunset glitter.
The decorative strip in front flap and handle of the purse are decorated in the same way: I adhered 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape to the white CS, covered tape with the Cloud Nine glitter and trimmed it to the correct size. Orange Diamond Mesh is attached with Bling Tape. I covered rest of the sticky parts with Sunset glitter.
The purse is kept closed with two magnets. On following photo you can see how the purse will open up.
Full directions of how this purse was made are in the SNS gallery.
You don't need any measurements to make this purse. I have them on the template but you can just print the template, cut it out and trace it to the cardstock you want to use. I cut little notches to mark the places where the score lines will go.
You still have time to participate in SNS Creative Challenges. All you have to do is use a loose glitter, embossing powder or flocking on your project.
