Heartfelt Creations Paper Purse

HEARTFELT CREATIONS PAPER PURSE

I have wanted to create a paper purse for some time; therefore, I decided to create this Heartfelt Creations Paper Purse using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Collection paper and related products.

I created this paper purse for my 2-year old (almost 3) granddaughter who is my crafting partner!  Yes, you read that right!  She loves crafting with me, and she especially loves it when I make her 3-D items.  She uses the 3-D items (e.g., baskets, boxes, mini-purses, etc.) that I make her to carry around her small dolls’ (i.e., 3″ tall) clothes and shoes.

She always tries, unsuccessfully, to get her little hand through the rather small handles of the smaller 3-D items.  I knew I needed to create for her a larger purse with a long strap.  Therefore, I created this purse with a long braided strap that will meet her need.  When I gave it to her, she immediately started stuffing her doll clothes into the purse and carrying it around with the strap on her shoulder.  So my objective was fulfilled, and she was a happy little girl!  Continue reading

Paper Purse Card with SU Paisley Petals

Welcome, my friends!  Yesterday I free-handed a Paper Purse Card with SU Paisley Petals DSP.   I designed this paper purse card for a challenge to create a card in a shape other than the normal rectangle or square.

Using my personally-designed template, I created the paper purse card base and handles with Marina Mist card stock.  I used Stampin’ Up!’s lovely retired Paisley Petals DSP on the front and back of the card base.  I made the top flap on the paper purse card with the same DSP using an Impression Obsession 6 in 1 frames die.  The die is one die that cuts out 6 different frames and they nest together perfectly.  I used the 6 frames cut from the two DSP designs, and alternated them on the flap.  I attached that onto a piece of Old Olive card stock.  I attached the flap to the card base with foam tape.  I created a Tangerine Tango rose with a Swarovski Crystal in the center and attached it to the purse flap.

Using an ODBD oval die, I cut out two ovals to which I added the sentiment and two Swarovski Crystals.  The paper purse card folds like a regular card and there is plenty of room on the inside for a personal message.  The card measures 7″ x 5-1/2″.

Stampin Up Paper Purse and Cards – Gingham Garden DSP

I have a cutie for you today; a Stampin Up Paper Purse and matching cards made with the  new Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper (129310).  I have noticed a lot of up-scale stores offering pink purses, so I decided the Gingham Garden DSP would be perfect for this Stampin Up Paper Purse.

The design for this paper purse is one that I developed back in 2011. You can see that purse here.

These are the three 3″ x 3″ “Thank You” greeting cards with matching envelopes.  The cards match the Stampin Up Paper Purse.

This picture is of the Stampin Up Paper Purse’s fastener that is made with the Daffodil Delight and floral design from the Gingham Garden DSP.  (Personally, I think the color is closer to So Saffron.)  I used a paper piercer around the edges of the fastener and stitched  a blue embroidery thread around it.  I topped it off with a Spring Catalog Designer Builder Brad.  Attached to that brad is a Midnight Muse In Color Dahlia (127556).

The 3″ x 3″ matching “Thank You” greeting cards fit perfectly into the opening of the purse.  I made three of the cards; however, I could easily fit six inside the Stampin Up Paper Purse.

This card features the new Gingham Garden Designer Washi Tape (129314).  I’ve not used washi tape before, and I must say I really like Stampin’ Up!’s.   Also featured are flowers from the Stampin’ Up!’s Boho Blossoms Punch (119858).

The primary features on this card are the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper and the Boho Blossoms Punch flowers.

Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper Purse, Wallet, and Card

Today I have a cutie for you – a Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper Purse, Wallet, and Birthday Card!  I personally designed the gorgeous Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper Purse, a small matching wallet, and birthday card. I wish you could feel the black velvet on this designer series paper (DSP) – such a luscious DSP.  If you do not have this DSP, you must buy it. It is so gorgeous and you certainly will be happy with your Mocha Morning Designer Series Paper creations!

The pictures below are of each item in the set. Unfortunately, my camera is on its last leg and is not taking very good pictures. I guess it’s time for a new one!

This picture shows the small wallet and Happy Birthday Card inside the purse. As you can see, there is plenty room for them, as well as other cards or items (i.e., keys for your daughter’s new car!).

The purse is 7″ x 4-1/2″ x 1″, and the wallet 4″ x 2-3/4″ x 1/2″. The Mocha Morning Designer Series purse has an outside pocket in which a gift card could be placed. The small matching wallet will hold easily a gift card, money, etc. The set would be a great birthday gift for a daughter or special friend.

Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper Purse #2

My share today is another Stampin’ Up! Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper  Purse that I made using my pattern for the Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper Purse that I posted yesterday. This purse will hold five 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ cards, depending on the cards’ embellishments. The pattern, as contained in my Beyond the Garden DSP Purse tutorial, allows for different decorations on the front of the purse. This purse front is embellished with many blossom petals made with the Blossom Petals Punch. I’m sure you’ve seen purses with numerous petals covering the purse front. This purse resembles such purses.

Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper Purse

The Poppy Parade Card Stock was used for the body of the purse and the blossom petals. One of the designs within the Beyond the Garden DSP was used for the purse closure and the center flower of the purse front. The petals were embossed with the Stampin’ Up! Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and spritzed with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. The handle on the purse was made with Poppy Parade 1/2″ Stitched-Poly Ribbon.

BEYOND THE GARDEN DESIGNER SERIES PAPER PURSE #2

Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper Purse

Hello, and thanks for stopping by to see my Stampin’ Up! Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper Purse. The Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP) is so beautiful and it becomes available this Sunday, May 1.

I personally designed the pattern for this purse, and it is different from the others I’ve designed. This purse was designed to hold approximately five 5-1/2″ by 4″ cards, depending on the cards’ embellishments.

Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper Purse

I used Pacific Point Card Stock to create the purse closure and the blossom on the front, which is decorated with a Beyond the Garden DSP flower. I used two Simply Adorned 8″ Bracelets that are connected by a piece of old Wild Wasabi ribbon to create the purse handle. As an added touch, on one side of the handle I attached a Simply Adorned 5/8″ Square Charm that features “Guneaux Designs” inside, and on the other side, a Simply Adorned Clear Crystal Bauble.
