Gift Card Purse - My Creative Time Challange

Hi all.  Here is a little purse gift card holder I made for a Challange over at Emma's My Creative Time

Just want to share my latest scrap-lifted creation.  I was seeing these little purse gift sets and thought they were so cute.  I wanted to make one as a gift cardholder for the bigger gift cards.  Here is what I came up with.

The purse I studied before I made mine was one on Scrapalette’s Blog (here) .

For mine, I wailed images together in the circuit craft room using Forever Young  and Art Philosophy cricut carts.  I also used my cuttlebug  with a sizzix folder called stars and swirls—used it just on the flap.

This was pretty easy once I found out the size I need for the gift card.  The large gift card (I-tunes) measures approximately 5 ¼ by 3 ½, so I need to make my purse base half’s just a little bigger than that.  So the narrowest part of the purse base is 5  5/8  by 7 ½ plus the flap.  Total length of base with flap is 10 inches.  Outside cover is shorter (to leave an edge) at 9 inches.  Inside pocket piece is 8 by 4 1/2 .  The pocket piece is folded in half and scored 1 inch in on each end -- that is the part that is folded over and glued down. 

Other supplies – lavender chalk ink, glitter pen, small pieces of velcro set (for flap closure), purple ribbon, glue,  Emma’s My Creative Time stamp set (Polka-dotSurprise).  Imagine Vintage paper (music sheet for music cards!), and black /lavender colorcore card stock.

God Bless and Happy Scrappin’
