Raspberry Tart Purse

I'm back! Two posts in one day...that doesn't happen too often! After posting the Plum Petal Pizazz Purse made with the scalloped envelopes yesterday I've gotten several emails asking to better explain how to put it together. Since they say a picture is worth a thousand words...and since I'm not that great at writing clear instructions...I made another purse and snapped some photos along the way.

First you will need to cut 2 scallop envelopes with your Big Shot. You will also need a strip of coordinating card stock for the handle. The handle also makes up the side of the purse. I cut two strips - Kiwi: 1" x 11" and Raspberry Tart: 3/4" x 11". Then I cut the bottom flaps of my two envelopes down to the same 1" width of my handle as shown below.Please note: You can skip this step if you don't mind a very wide handle - the size handle you would need if you do not trim is 1-1/2" x 11" Next you will want to adhere the two bottom flaps together with sticky strip as show here: Then add sticky strip to the side flaps as shown: Peel away the red liner on one side at a time and carefully attach to the handle as shown. Remove red liner from sticky strip and attach the other side. Now your purse is assembled and ready to embellish and fill with goodies!I used the flower die from the Birds and Blooms Sizzlits and Latte Buttons to embellish my purse. I also used some Raspberry Tart scraps along with the Polka Dot Punches and Yummy SAB sets to make the little 3x3 note card. The note card and chocolates will easily tuck inside this darling little purse and make a sweet Valentine treat.

I love the tutorial.Thank you for sharing. I love your work. It is truly inspirational. You should really enter this project into the so shelli creative challenge. she is doing a challenge for the salebration sets and since you used the polka dot punches stamp set I think you have a good chance of winning. Love the idea shame Australia doesn't have the big shot yet.

This is adorable...very easy to duplicate thanks to your awesome tutorial. I made one modification and cut my cs handle 1 5/8" wide and then used the scallop edge punch on both sides. It came out very cute. Thanks so much for this. So happy to find another great stamping blog!
