Shoe Week: Bella Rose Purse

The shoes posted yesterday needed to have a purse. I found one to add today. It looks great next to the shoe - the proportions are perfect! The finished purse size is 5-1/2" x 8" and will fit a set of 4-5 cards with envelopes. The purse template: see a printable template and video tutorial on www.carlosnmolina.com This site is so fabulous with so many fun shoes............I stumbled on to his site and loved it! You will, too. After all, he is the paper genius!

Here's a close-up of the purse front:

Another view of the purse front. The handles were cut using the Circle Scissor Plus. Both the leaves and the various layers of Butterflies are a SU Exclusive Big Shot dies. All are attached to the loop at front with a pop up glue dot. Don't forget to curl the butterfly wings with a bone folder. Gemstones added to the butterflies (just like the shoes)

To close the purse, I added a 1-1/2" x 3-1/2" long strip on top of the cut out half circle from the handles. This strip is put through the loop.

Here's the loop behind all the leaves and butterflies, attached with sticky tape to secure.
