Quick, Cute Tutorial

Thought I'd do a quick little Tutorial, for a Purse Gift Card....

Here is the front, and when you open it up....

There is a little slot for the gift card....

1-Start with a half sheet of card stock that is cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" in your choice of color. Fold in half and then mark the open end in at 3/4" on each open side and draw a line down to to the folded corner:

2-Next, using the smaller template, cut an additional sheet of colored card stock for the gift card insert. Slide the word window punch in as far as it will go, and punch, and slide to either side and punch again until the slot is long enough to slide a gift card in. Adhear to either inside of the card with sticky strip on all four edges. Next cut a piece of your Designer paper with the same template, but cut 1/4" off of each side, and adhere to the opposite side of inside of card.

3-Cut a piece of matching card stock with the Large Scallop Die in your Big Shot. Fold in half, and with the small slot punch, clip just a small amout on either side of the folded side, so that you can slide the handle in. With the Large Circle from the Circles 2 Die, cut a piece of matching card stock, and then hand trim out the inside so that you have a 1/4" handle. Insert into slots and adhear, and then adhear to back side of card with Sticky Strip.

4-Punch a matching piece of paper with the Scallop Circle Punch, and adhear to front of purse. Punch a hole with your Crop-a-Dial, and insert a Flower Brad.

5-Cut a second circle with the largest circle in the Circle 2 Dies out of your Designer Paper, and cut in half, and adhear to inside of purse flap, to cover prongs of your brad. Insert your gift card and you are good to go!!! What little ... or Big girl wouldn't love this!!!
