Summer Afternoon – Petite Purse

By | May 19, 2012

 Hi Stampin' Friends

It's a beautiful weekend in Northwest Arkansas.  I hope you are having pleasant weather. It's been such a nice spring this year.

Well, I finally finished the petite purse – not that it was that hard to make but I had to redo it a couple of times because I kept making dumb mistakes.  The ladies will be making the purse at Jane's private class on Monday and at the Big Shot Class on Friday, 25 May 2012.  If you live in the Northwest Arkansas area (Bella Vista) and would like to attend, there's still time to register.  Details here….

The finished product is so cute and I used the new Comfort Cafe DSP (love it!) to cover the front of the purse.  I learned a few things in making this purse and wanted to let you know so that you don't make the same mistakes I did!


  • My score (fold) lines were too deep and I had to add scotch tape to the fold lines so that the purse would not come apart.  Add it to the inside of the purse and it will not show.
  • You need to make the slit larger if you are adding another layer (such as DSP) for the flap (front part that has the small flower on it.  You'll see the slit in the video below (provided by Stampin' Up!).
  • If your pattern on the DSP has a direction to it, you need to make sure that you lay the DSP in the same direction as the purse.  I had to redo the purse when I discovered that the pattern was slightly askew. (see photo below for placement of DSP)


 I thought I would add the video from Stampin' Up! on how easy it is to make the Petite Purse.   It really is!



Thanks for stopping by today
