Here comes project #2

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the delay, but I was learning how to post on YouTube, with all of the additional video editing stuff.  I think I have gotten the hang of it, at least some of it, please let me know what you think!

Here is the project from my second video, the Gift Card Purse using Stampin’ Up Supplies.

Just start with a 6×6 square sheet of paper, and follow the directions in the video link above.  I used the 6×6 size to create a purse that was the right size for a standard gift card.  Although, as long as you start with a square, you can make these any size.  You probably just need to lengthen the cut for the handle.

The pink and black ones were made from the (now retired) Playful Pallet Designer Series 6×6 Paper Stack.  I used 1/4 of a Delicate White Doily, and sponged it to coordinate with the card images.  The butterfly is from the Watercolor Wings Stamp Set, and I used the colors that matched the paper stack.  The pink purse has “Just For You” stamped on Very Vanilla and cut with a banner framelit.  The note cards are made from Very Vanilla card stock, cut a piece 4″ x 3 1/2″ and score the 4″ side at 2″.

The third one shows the Eastern Palace Suite of products.  The purse is made from the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper, and the medallion is from the Eastern Vinyl Stickers.  For the notecard, I just sponged a little Fresh Fig ink where I was sticking the medallion.  On the front of the purse, I stuck the medallion onto Dapper Denim card stock, then fussy cut it out, and stuck it on with dimensionals.  The sentiment was from Teeny Tiny Wishes, and cut out with the Classic Label Punch.

I probably should have used a darker background for this shot, but I hope you can see it well enough.  The border at the bottom of the purse is also in the Eastern Vinyl Stickers.

This is a great project when you need a quick, but personal, gift card holder and note card.  I can be made at the last minute but still suit the personality of the recipient.

I hope you enjoyed this project, and that you give it a try.

And, until we meet again, may your days be blessed. ~Darby
