(the nicest papers I've ever used!)
Party it up
GCD Shades of Black stickers

die cut Chipboard
...make the Stylized Purse box:
- a rectangular box
- with 2 shaped pieces for the front and back
- a curvy label like piece for the purse flap
- & the fastest handle from the GCD Paris Night Collection!
Step 2) Trace the purse shapes onto the Paris Night Collection paper & cut them out. (This paper is velvet AND it has shimmery fabric like texture! It's unreal. I want to mount panels of it on the walls of our home!)
Step 3) Adhere the shapes to black cardstock to strengthen for the crazy purse feet.
Step 4) Cut the purse pieces from the black cardstock
Step 5) Adhere them to the text (also from Paris Night)
Step 6) Cut 'em again
Step 7) Trace the box template & line it with more gorgeous text paper. Make 4 side pieces each measuring a harir over 2-1/2" x 3 1/8" (Two to match the lining & two to match the outside velvety-ness.)
Step 8) Make the handle by gluing a thin Paris Nights scallop die cut piece onto a thick one
Step 9) Adhere the handle in between the side pieces.
Step 10) Stick the front & back onto the rectangular box (so that it sits up behind the full part & the feet show blank space between them.)
Step 11) Trace & cut the purse flap. Bead it & stitch it.
Step 12) Adhere the flap to black cardstock, trim around it to frame it (and to hide the stitches.)
Step 13) Make a decorative label (this uses CGD Shades of Black stickers, more Paris Nights die cuts, a dollarstore metal piece, & some swarovski crystals.)
(measures 4.5 inches wide &
fits standard A2 cards & envelope)
