May Arts and Scor-pal with Katie Tate

It's my turn today for the cross promotion on the Scor-Pal blog between Scor-Pal and May Arts.
For my projects I decided to make a Paris themed purse designed to hold notecards.

Project Recipe:
Tools - Scor-Pal, and Scor-Mat Adhesive - Scor-Tape and Hot Glue
Stamps - Moulin Rouge Tilda
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Countryside Villa by The Paper Studio
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Die Cuts - Oval and Beaded Oval by Spellbinders
Accents - The Paper Studio
Hinge - Making Memories
Fabric Brad - The Paper Studio
Ribbons/Trim - Eyelet Trim, Black and White Chevron Wired all May Arts

Here you can see the items used in this project.

The base of the purse is made from black card stock measuring 12" by 6" scored at 4" and 8" along the 12" side.

For the pockets inside you start with a piece of card stock 10" by 4"
On the 10" side score at 1", 2", 8" and 9"
On the 4" side score at 1" and 2"
Burnish all folds

Decorate the front as wished.
Trim the corner flaps as in the photo and add Scor-Tape as in the photo to create the pocket.

Decorate the inside panels of the purse before adding the pockets that will hold the cards

Punched both sides of 12" by 1 3/4" strips of cardstock to create the handles.
Use Scor-Tape to attach to the inside panels of the purse.

Decorate the handle and purse edge as you desire.

Here you can see the double pockets inside the purse.

This flower was created from a 12" length of eyelet trim that was gathered along the edge with a simple running stitch and then the ends stitched together once gathered.
It was topped with a fabric brad

The completed purse.
A metal hinge was used as the fastener on the top. The hinge was attached with brads on one side and a magnet attached to the front inside top so that the hinge would attach and hold the purse closed.

The following are just close ups of the decoration.
