TOP NOTE PURSE TUTORIAL
I know you will want the instructions on how to make the adorable little purse I posted HERE and HERE using the Top Note Die from SU!, so I have created this tutorial for you. They are simple to make and can be used for any occasion.
Here are the supplies you will need:
Wide Oval Punch
Scallop Circle Punch
1-1/4" Circle Punch
Adhesives: Snail, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip
Big Shot & Top Note Die
Cut two Top Notes using the Big Shot and the Top Note Die.
Use the Wide Oval Punch and punch 1/4" below the top edge of the Top Note, one at a time.
I turn the punch upside down to make it easier to see the placement.
This is what your Top Note should look like after you punch the handle.
Cut a piece of cardstock for the base (I used Kraft) 4" x 5-1/2. Using the bone folder, score at 1" on all sides. Cut sides to form a 1" tab.
Place sticky strip on all four tabs.
Fold and adhere the tabs to form the base of the purse.
Finished size of base is 2" x 3-1/2".
Pinch the two sides together making a fold in the center of each short side of the base.
Place two lines of sticky strip on both long sides of the base.
Stamp and decorate the Top Notes before proceeding to the next step. I used:
Stamps: Love You Much
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Pretty in Pink
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Tools: Scallop Circle Punch, 1-14" Circle Punch
Adhere the base to each side of a Top Note making sure the top and bottom are aligned and that the handles are matched up.
Tie Ribbon on top of handle.
