Technique Tuesday - Scrapbook Page Purse

I finally had a chance to put a tutorial together. Several of you asked for one showing how to make the pouch I had showed last week. So here it is!

First start off with a 6x6 scrapbook page. You are going to cut off the edge that has the holes.







For the main piece you will need to cut down a piece of cardstock to be 6 1/2 x 9 1/2. You will score at 6 1/2 to create the flap.







Tape down your scrapbook page to the 6 1/2 area of the cardstock.







Slide in a piece of 6x6 decorative card stock into the scrapbook page. Add velco to the flap so that you have something to open and close the flap. I found it I had the velco pieces attached together then place on the flap then close the flap then the piece will be aligned perfectly.




Cut a piece of card stock to fit on the top flap I cut my piece to 6 x 2 1/2. Tape down to the top flap.







Cut a half circle out using your circle punch. Sometimes it doesn't cut through all the way so just finish the cut with your scissors.







Using your hole punch to punch out a circle on both sides at the crease line of your flap. This will be where you run the ribbon through.






Run ribbon through the whole and make a knot. Do this on both sides to create your handle.







Add rub on's or other touches to the outside corner of scrapbook page. Decorate the top flap. I will share with you all tomorrow the final project. Happy Stamping!

Your sentiments are right on. I get those comments a lot too. They don't realize that what they see isn't always the first version. Very nice project.
