I made this project with the help of my Silhouette. 3D Gift Card Wallet by Lori Whitlock DESIGN ID #45493
Herewith a step by step tutorial you may use
to recreate such a project:
Cut a 'purse' gift box from black cardstock
and pattern paper. Mine measures (sizes optional) : Cardstock 25 cm x 13 cm Pattern sheet 24.5 cm x 12.5 cm
Adhere the pattern piece onto the cardstock. Fold the perforated lines inwards (to form an accordion fold) Add double sided tape on the two tabs as shown. Tip : Use the red double side tape to adhere boxes. This makes assembly easy and will prevent the box from falling apart.
Cut a few elements using dies (mentioned in supply list) from the pattern sheets and cardstock.
Cut a set of bows from the pattern sheets and assemble accordingly using a brad. Tip : Curl the two bow strips forming a curve using the back of pencil or similar object. This makes folding the end pieces together a little easier.
Fussy cut a lady element (from my stash) and adhere behind the oval frame as shown. Oval shape has been cut using a die.
Emboss the butterfly through your embossing machine using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Love how you can decorate these metals from G45. Tip : Run this through your machine twice to make the dots pop out more... depending on what machine you have. If electric once should do the trick.
Stamp the banners with the word image using the stamp set. Mat the banner elements with cardstock.
Emboss chipboard piece with Ranger Blush Pearl and cut in half.
Punch two circles from pattern paper and cardstock...to hide the brad from the bow that will be visible. Add velcro dots as shown...to be able to open and close the purse flap with ease.
Arrange the rest of the embellishments
as per the picture or as you like.
Now you can add a little gift
inside or chocolates.
