T his trio includes a purse, a 3x3 card and a fun fold card.
Be as Bold as your Lipstick 3x3 card.
Use the 3x3 cards with the wisp of purple posey. The card will open from the bottom.

Stamp and die cut 2 pairs of shoes. Die cut strap for purse to use as shelf.
Color shoes using So Saffron and Purple posey Stampin’ Blends.
Cut shelf to fit card.
Stamp and die cut sentiment.
Adhere shelf, then shoes. Adhere sentiment using dimensionals. I took a glue dot and touched it on both sides and added it to the inside of the outside flap (floral flap) to get it to close. It will remove easily before sending. I also recommend using a bone folder after scoring.
You will need to die cut two purse sides, two purse handles and four buckles. I used purple posey for the purse and silver foil for the buckles. Stampin’ Up!’s silver foil is not as thick as other brands. It is easier to use with the buckles. I also used waxed paper with the buckles. As usual, my Take your Pick tool was hiding. I used the tip of the snips to pop the buckles. Also remove the wax foil.
Be sure to use your bone folder to fold your score lines.
Line up the two sides of the purse. Make sure the “neck lines” are facing the same direction. Make sure that the gusseted sides are not together.
You want to have the flaps on the inside of the purse. I, of course, have several where at least one flap is outside! I made that the back of the purse.
I used tear & tape as my adhesive. It just fits inside the fold. You may wish to cut your piece in half before adhering it. My edges are a little tacky when I don’t trim the tear and tape.
I put tear & tape on the two small inside flaps for the bottom. Then I adhered one of the larger bottom flaps to the smaller ones. Then I put tear & tape on the inside of the last flap and adhered them together. I sat up the purse and ran the bottom of my bone folder against the bottom of the purse to get a good seal.
The straps. I used my bone folder to curl the straps. I put the buckles on. Be careful with the silver foil, it is rather bendy. Then I adhered tear & tape to the bottom back side of the handles. I put a bit much on. Put a smaller amount, so that your straps are not tacky on the back. You can also use an adhesive remover to get the glue off.
Adhere one strap to the front and one to the back. The 3x3 notecards fit in the purse better this way. Just pinch the gussets outwards to get the cards in!
