You will need 2 pieces of paper: Paper for the bottom of the purse measuring 8.5" x 10"; and paper for the top of the purse measuring 7 1/4" x 6 1/4". Let's create the bottom of the purse first. With the 10" side at the top, score 1 1/2" and 8 1/2".
With the 8.5" side at the top, score at 3 1/2" and 5".
Cut the vertical lines up until you reach the horizontal lines. Fold and adhere into a box:
You have just completed the bottom of the purse.
Now let's work on the cover. Cut a strip of 8.5 x 1" paper for the handle. Score 1 inch at both ends.
The cover of your purse is 7 1/4" x 6 1/4". With the 6 1/4 at the top, score at 2" and 3 1/2". I rounded my corners and embossed it.
Adhere the two ends of the strip to the middle of the creases so that it is shaped like a handle.
Putting the purse together: Adhere the short side of the top of your purse onto one side of the bottom part of your purse.
All done! Now all you have to do is add your personal touches:
I placed a circle diecut at the front of my purse to accent:
The purse is kept closed with velcro.
Thank you for stopping by! My computer is back up, thanks to DH!!!!!

Call the store now to reserve your spot! You will need to bring the following supplies to class:
Paper trimmer, scissors, pencil, adhesive tape or glue; 150 Xyron sticker maker or any type of glue pen/glue stick; piercing tool, ScorPal or thither scoring tool, Tweezers, Tim Holtz Applicator tool or sponge and White Opal Liquid Pearl (if you have).
On a side note: I believe we caught another virus on our computer so I'm doing the virus scan, etc. Only thing is it takes almost half a day to clean it out! Hence I'm blogging through my ipad.

Start with a 5 1/4 x 6 in paper. You can make 4 holders from a 12 x 12 piece of paper. With the 5 1/4 side up, score 3/4" from both ends. With the 6" side up, score at 1 1/4 and 3 3/4.
Cut the 3/4 score lines off, leaving the middle panel uncut. Do the same thing on the other side. Now cut tabs from the 3/4" scored middle panel (See the picture above.)
Cut a 3/4" x 6" for the band. (You can use the left over paper or choose a coordinating color). Decorate. (I reused the reindeer that Dori made.)
All done!! Didn't I saw it is the simplest and easiest gift card holder!!! :o)
All I did was round the straight edge corners. In fact, I'm going back to round the edge of the reindeer one. I think it looks much better with it rounded. You can also use a decorative corner rounder.
Make yours today and please send me a picture!
