Gift Card Purse Tutorial

Hello everyone, here is a little tutorial on making these sweet little gift card purses. Aren't they just the sweetest things???
Here's what you need.
Paper Cutter
Score Pal
Double sided DSP
Cardstock to match the DSP cut with the SU Top Note Die
Ribbon 10"

An embellishment for the closure or you can make you own. I used one of these sweet little Tinker Bell embellishments.
SU Med. Cellophane Bag ~ to hold the gift card, ticket or business card.

Score the 6" x 6" DSP at 3 inches and fold and press.

Score the SU Top Note Die cut at 1 5/8" and again at 2 1/8"
fold and press.

Punch holes in the to of the folded Top Note about 3/4" in from both sides.

Thread your ribbon through the holes and tie a knot in both ends, cut any loose tails off.

Measure 7/8" from the top opening on the DSP and cut at an angle to the bottom (see photo). This will make the bottom of the purse and will attach under the Top Note. Do this on both sides of the DSP.

Lay it inside the Top Note piece to make sure it fits the way you want it to.

Now tape the DSP to the back inside of the Top Note with tape.

Attach the embellishment on the front of the Top Note Die and then attach the Velcro on the underneath side and on the outside of the purse.
Now for the Gift Card Holder. You will need 1 SU Med. Cellophane Bag.

Put the card, or whatever you are using, in the bag and cute about 3/4" above it, and then attach it to the inside of the purse with your tape.
And there you have it.

Enjoy, and let your imagination go wild . Thanks so much for stopping by.. Come back anytime..
Have a wonderful day!!!

Pin It!
