Fancy Folds: Making an Envelope Punch Board Handbag

Today's design team project for the Mix It Up Challenge Blog was made for the December monthly challenge of Fancy Folds. You can play along and see the other designer's projects here on the challenge blog.

The pictures have highlighted some of the tools that I used to make this cute little handbag but to really understand how it was made, just click on this You Tube link from the Paper Pixie to watch how it is done step-by-step. Her video is easy to follow and is exactly what I did to make mine from a 12 x 12 sheet of paper.

The patterned paper, lace and flower accent that I used for mine came from Itsy Bitsy. I used SU! Tear & Tape for the body of the purse and the Best Glue Ever to adhere the embellishments. The last step involved some die cutting and heat embossing to make the metallic gold greeting medallion.

I don't usually make too many 3D items, but this was alot of fun and very easy to do, so I will be exploring lots more ways to use my envelope punch board for things other than just envelopes, lol. Until next time, happy crafting~
