Thank you Purse and Cards

Hello, Stampers! Yesterday, a friend of mine was dropping by and I would like to thank her for lending me her extra cutter. I just thought of making the purse that Kristen had presented in the meeting. However, I made a little tweek where the shape of the purse would be rectangular and not in an A-Frame shape. Anyway, I took the time to visually instruct you to make them. Have FUN!!!

Purse Details:
DSP: Chocolate Chip Brown (retired set, but you can use the current ones)
CARDSTOCK: Pink Pirouette
Ribbon: Pink Pirouette Stripe
TOOLS: Big Shot Texturz Template SU Background#1, Circle Scissors Plus (for the purse flap - set at 5-3/4"). Used Eyelet Edge Punch and the Wide Oval Punch for the Thank You cards.
Other Details: I'm still waiting for my SU brads so I had to use non-SU brads..hehe.

Body Purse measure- 5-3/4" x 10-3/4"
Scored- 4-1/2" and 6-1/4".
Use Texturz Template SU Background to emboss CS.

Side measure - 2-1/2" x 4-3/4"
Scored at 3 sides at - 3/8"
Scored at the middle at - 1-1/4"
Scored from corner to a point in the middle so it accurately folds in the bag's base.
***Don't forget to cut the corner ends of the base.

Adhere the 3/8" scores to the body of the bag

Flap Measures - 4-1/4" x 5-3/4"
Using Circle Scissors - set blade position at 5-3/4"
Score on the long side at 1/2" and 1"

Adhere the flap to the purse body at the 1/2" score and adhere ribbon behind the flap

Here is the look of the purse without the ribbon handle. You can use this as a card holder or a clutch purse :)

I had to put something in it so I made this cute Thank You Cards!!!
Very Vanilla CS Measure - 3" x 6" and Scored at 3"
Pink Pirouette CS Meassure - 2-3/4" x 5-3/4"
STAMP used is the Elegant Thank You - pg. 208 #114484, I just love it!
Used Eyelet Edge Punch and used the same Texturz Template used on the Body of the Purse.
