Travel Themed Purse with Technique Junkies

Hello Everyone!
How is your day going?  I am sitting here looking out on pretty snow flakes falling.  Pretty indeed, but I am looking forward to Spring this year.  I have a whole yard to landscape this year ( for the new house ).  In just a few months I will be able to get started on that project.  Fun!

So, for the present, I am enjoying my crafty projects.  Here is a cute fun fold card shaped like a purse and made with Technique Junkie stamps.

Materials List: 
Stamps: New York Music, Vintage Travel Cases, Oh, Snap, Paid in Full all from Technique Junkies
Technique: Purse Gift Card Holder from Fancy Folds and Motion Technique CD
Ink: Espresso Truffle Memento; Butterscotch Adirondack
CS: Kraft; Cream; Sahara Sand Stampin' Up
Sailor 2 Way Glue
Dimensional Adhesive

Make it:

  • Make the purse shape following the directions on the Fancy Folds and Motion CD.  I omitted the bottom fold as I did not want to use the purse as a gift card holder, but as a card.
  • Stamp New York Music on Kraft CS twice and cover front and inside with the pieces

  • Stamp Paid in Full with butterscotch ink, The couple and sentiment from Vintage Travel Case with Espresso ink and use for the inside top

  • On the flap, stamp New York Music 
  • To make the closure, stamp the Slide frame from the Oh, Snap stamp set on cream CS and on a scrap of paper--use image on scrap paper to create a mask
  • Cover Slide frame with the mask and stamp the couple
  • Fussy cut the slide frame
  • Put dimensional adhesive on the top half of the closure
  • One the bottom half of the closure put a small amount of the 2 Way glue and let it dry completely---now the glue will make a temporary adhesion to hold the purse shut
  • Punch two holes in the flap and add the ribbon handle
