The Promised Purse Templates

My Scanner and computer is still being HALish, but the templates are scanned at long last. :0)

Templates available in PDFs here

You can make one side-less, or you can make a big template (on 12x12 cardstock by tracing the main purse body & then adding sides by tracing them too. (My scanner bed will only fit 8.5x11 but I tricked it, muhahaha!) It's a bit of a pain in the derriรจre for you to trace the parts separately, but it will give ya a schnifty purse template. :0)

There's instructions on how to save, print, & use the templates at the link above, but if I've made 'em confusing or you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to leave me a comment there, here, or in my email (

BLUSH! Thank you so much Marion. You're an angel. You made my day! (Or should I say night, since I just woke up at 1:44AM with an urge to stamp --maybe I should just be declared a loony insomniac? heehee)
