Another gift box purse
Today I made another of the gift box purses to take to my sister this week when we go to visit. She loves purple!
This was the easiest purse so far because I have perfected the technique some...first of all instead of cutting and measuring I made a template for the purse shape out of chip board and just traced it.
Second, I found a sizzix dye to use for the "pocket" on the front of purse so I don't have to measure, cut, score, and assemble my own version and I love it because it puts all the scores and cuts in one step Great when I am ready to mass produce some of these.
And finally, I bought a score board. Never thought I needed this tool but my goodness it is wonderful. I have already made envelopes on it and now I was able to score my box for the purse middle in seconds! All you do is cut your cardstock to size and score the sides at the correct dimensions in one swipe of the bone folder!! The sunglasses pattern and the tag came from Forever Young Cricut Cartridge...The pattterned paper and cardstock are Stampin Up.
