Purse Giftbox Tutorial

I made this little gift box to put money into for a graduation gift! And it uses Basic Grey's Sophie Starter Pack available at the DigiChick HERE.


I used the pattern made available at splitcoasstampers.com, HERE.

Here is a list of what you will need:
1 white heavy cardstock
1 set of sticky velcro
gluestick
2 clothespins
1 sheet photo paper

1. Make a 3x6 inch rectangle in Photoshop and clip one of the papers onto it. Make another rectangle 1/2x7 inch and clip another paper onto it (this is the handle). Print on regular printer paper.

2. Print one of the flower rub-ons from the Sophie Starter Pack onto photo paper (for its thick weight).

3. Print the purse template onto regular paper and using this template, cut out the white cardstock. Cut out a handle from the cardstock.

4. Use the template to cut out the purse flap out of the printed rectangles.

5. Adhere the printed purse flap onto the white cardstock. To facilitate the folds, score gently on the fold lines. Adhere the sides with the gluestick and use the two clothespins to hold the sides togther until it dries.

6. Adhere the printed handle onto the white cardstock handle and attach to the purse on the sides, again using the clothespins to aid in keeping it attached until the glue dries.

7. Attach the sticky velcro onto the front and flap of the purse.

8. Finally, cut out the flower rub-on and adhere to the front of the purse.

Enjoy your purse!!!

En Pointe and freebie

We are happy to show you a new collab we have with the wonderful Cheryl aka gonewiththewind aka as Fiddle-dee-dee Designs. We have been good buddies with Cheryl ever since we started as CTMs together for Christina Renee. We have always been in awe of her scrapping skills (as probably the rest of the scrapping world) and even more so once she started designing those amazing templates of hers. Cheryl has been with us as CTM since we first started (thanks for hanging with us through it all and always supporting us, sweetie!) and we were so happy when she debuted as a template designer chick at TDC with us. This is a very exciting project and I hope you girls are as thrilled with it as we are. So here it is... En Pointe.
ps. If you look at the previous post you will find additional glitter, mask and cluster packages as well as some inspiration from our wonderful CT.



And here is a special freebie for you. It's a purse printable for you to make. I love this and will be using it to keep my girl's recital tickets and pocket photos as a keepsake. You can fill it with a small gift for someone or whatever else your heart desires. ENJOY!!!





FREEBIE HERE

Here is a mini tutorial for it as most of it is self explanatory.

You will need:
Printable above
flower
sticky velcro
glue (not gluestick)
photo paper to print on
clothespins
craft knife

1. Print the 2 sheets in the download on heavy photo paper (almost a light cardstock).
2. Cut out the purse, handle pieces, and button.
3. Score on the folded lines very gently with craft knife. I use a ruler to cut against for straighter lines.
4. Fold the purse on the scored lines. Apply adhesive on the tabs closest to the side pieces and stick it together. Use the clothes pins to hold it in place until the glue dries. I did not use glue stick as its a heavier paper and needs a stronger fixative.
5. Glue the handle pieces together. I like a stronger handle, therefore, 2 pieces. Use a paper cutter to make straighter cuts.
6. Glue a flower next to the dancer on the button.
7. Apply the velcro to the inside flap of the purse.
8. Glue the button to the outside flap of the purse.

Hugs, love and happy scrapping!

Ballet Season!!!

We got together with Cheryl of Fiddle Dee Dee Designs and did up a fabulous Degas inspired ballet collection, here is all the collection has to offer and some inspiration from our wonderful CT as well!



It's available at the DigiChick seperately and bundled together in a money saving set!











Vanessa's girls (the older ones) take ballet so this is the perfect time with recitals coming up. I've got some catch up, my younger girl was a ballet student so I can scrap her pages with this. Now she's a sailor so I'm gonna have to come up with another type of kit! Anyway, take a look at these layouts from our team. Pure delicious inspiration:



And a couple of our ladies likes to do different sizes:
