2011-09-28 September Shoebox Gathering – Bonnie
Project #2 from the September Shoebox Gathering was brought to the group by Bonnie (ME!) I found this cute project on-line and have attached the video below.
I cut out an assortment of 2 sided DSP that the ladies could choose from.
By using 2 sided scrapbook paper, the inside will look nice too. This 1st one was made as the prototype. I put the one and only stamp I used (Stampin’ Up) right in front of the purse so you could picture the size…it will hold 4 nuggets of Chocolate, a fun size candy bar, or maybe…a mini lotion, lip balm, perfume?
This cute little project goes together in a snap. The only tricky part that I found I needed to watch and re-watch to get it right, is the origami fold pleat that forms the bottom of the purse. I’m so glad there is video for this, I would have never gotten this with photos!
Before you watch the video, get out these supplies so you can follow along
1-6×6″ card stock or scrapbook paper; preferably 2 sided (print or color on both sides)
2 each of 3 1/2″ long x 1″ wide
2 each of 7″ long x 1/4″ wide
And the scoring directions on the 6×6″ is as follows:
Score at 1 1/4″, flip 180° and score again at 1 1/4″
flip 90°, score at 2 1/2″, flip 180° and score again at 2 1/2″
now go watch the video and see how the fold is pleated to make the bottom section!
