Tuesdays are for crafting and today we are going to make an amazing purse with the Luxury Icon Purse Dies. These wonderful dies give you two bag options; one is a fold-able purse and the other is a 3D purse with gusseted sides. We love using these beautiful purses, and they are great for birthdays, to say hello, to house a gift card and even as a party favor. We used several different items to make today’s gorgeous project that we will list below. If you are a fan of pretty purses, then you will love making this project with us today! If you don’t have the Luxury Icon Purse Dies, then you can get them on sale on our website this week!
Come craft with us!
First, nest the purse and purse shadow layer onto 2 sheets from the Animal Print Cardstock.
Run this through twice to ensure cutting. You can cut 2 at a time because of the intricate leather pattern on the cardstock.
Next, use 2 pieces of double-sided brown cardstock from the Foliage and Leaf Cardstock to create the 2 pieces of the purse and the hinge needed to connect them.
From another piece of leather cardstock, cut the purse belt, handles, tag and decorative portion of the purse.
Use tear tape on the hinge to attach the 2 sides together.
Now your purse structure is formed.
Use foam adhesive to add the decorative layers to the front and back of the purse.
Add the decorative portions to the top front and back of the purse. We added small, gold details for an additional pop of color.
Voila! Your leather purse is ready to decorate!
We created collages to add to the purse using the Birthday Box Signature Cards, Favorite Flowers 3D Stickers and the Super Sentiment Stickers.
