Winter Purse and Notecard set

Hi everyone, my newest project for the Rubber Buggy is this cute winter purse and note card set.   Please visit the Rubber Buggy Store for all the fun products I've used today.

This project is not as difficult as you might think.  It consists of 4 main pieces that, when assembled, create this fun gift purse.

Cut 2 pieces of Lawn Fawn white cardstock 5 1/2" x 7".  Taper the panels by cutting 1/2" off both edges gradually ending in a point.

Cut pattern paper 5 1/4" x 6 3/4".  I used Maja Designs - Wrapped in Old Newspaper and Vintage Summer Basics 1903.  Create the same angle.

Ink all edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Cut a 3rd panel 5" x 6 1/2".  I used Maja Design - On Christmas Morning.  Create the same angle, then adhere to the outside panels.

To create the pockets, cut 2 pieces of cardstock 3 1/2" x 8".
Score the short edge at 1/2" and 1".
Score the long edge at 1/2", 1", 7", and 7 1/2".

Cut along the score lines as shown.  Ink edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Fold to create the pockets.  The pockets will have a 3d effect so you can slide cards in each one.

Add a strip of pattern paper across each pocket.  I used scraps of Maja Design papers.
To assemble the purse, cut a strip of white cardstock 1" x 6" and score in half lengthwise.
Add Scor-Tape to each side of the score line and fold in half.
Place the pockets on the 1" strip, on each side of the score line.

Add score tape along the edges of the pockets and adhere to the purse panels.

Create cards from the left over scraps of Maja papers.  Use Lawn Fawn Rectangle Dies to die cut panels for one of the card.  Use Lawn Fawn Marry Christmas die for the other card.  Add Raspberry Liquid Pearls to create berries on the first card.

Slip the cards into each pocket.

To finish the purse, cut 2 strips, each 1/2" x 12" for the handles.  
Cut 4 flaps, each 1" x 1 1/4".
Adhere the handles approximately 1/2" from each edge and add the flaps on top. 
Add brads for a finished look.
For the flap, cut cardstock 2" x 6" and score at 2 1/2" and 3 1/2".
Adhere to the back of the purse, and place a Velcro dot on the front.

A look at the back side of the purse.

This is definitely a fun project to create.  I can see creating them in a variety of styles for lots of occasions, such as birthdays, Christmas, teacher gifts, etc.

Thanks for stopping by.
