Gift card purse set - Scrapbook Boutique December Inspiration Challenge and Blog Hop


You've joined me for the last Scrapbook Boutique  Blog Hop and Inspirational Challenge for 2013.  

The Hop starts and ends at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog.  If you're following along you should have arrived from Melissa's blog and when you leave me you hop over to Therese's Blog.

The hop is open for one week, closing at midday Tuesday 17th December. 
To be eligible to win the prize, leave a comment on each of the blogs, with the SB blog being the last one.  The random winner will be drawn from the  SB blog and announced on Wednesday 18th.

Unfortunately the blog hop prize (and the inspiration challenge) are only open to anyone with an Australian mailing address.

One lucky person will receive Flourishes Star Of Bethlehem


We hope you'll have time to join us over the festive season  and play along with our regular monthly inspirational challenge.
   Make a project using the following picture as your inspiration.

You could be the winner of a $30 gift voucher for Scrapbook Boutique.  


Here's my little Christmas gift card purse and card .

For those who like the 'How to"
  • Die cut a star from some red card, that I'd cut to fit a 4.25 x 5.5" white card base.
  • Position and adhere a 3"square of gold card to sit beneath the die cut.
  • Using foam adhesive tabs adhere the die cut red card over card base.
  • Die cut a smaller gold star and pop up in the centre of the larger star shape.
  • Stamp a sentiment and 2 parcels to white card 1" wide and using double sided tape adhere to card front.

The Purse is made as follows:
  • Die cut the 2nd largest shape from Spellbinders - Grand Labels 4 from Crimson card. Score across the middle point and fold. Trim off the top point to complete the purse shape.
  • From co-ordinating DP and using a Circle die cut a circle. Fold in half and adhere the back half to the rear of the purse.
  • Use two circle dies, one inside the other to cut the purse strap. Adhere this to the back of the purse.
  • Stamp two parcels and to/from to white card. Trim and adhere to a strip of crimson Card measuring 4.25" x 2.5".  Fold under .25" at the base.
  • Die cut a faux crochet border from white card and adhere beneath the top of the crimson card.
  • Adhere the completed pocket to the inside of the purse by adding double sided tape across the .25" turn up at the bottom of the crimson card and along both sides.
  • Stamp the No Peeking sentiment to white card and die cut using a small stag die. Add a small gold star.
  • Attach the tag to the purse handle with seam binding. Add a lace flower.
  • Adhere 3 small gold stars to the bottom of the purse to complete.

I can promise you it takes longer to write this up than it takes to make it LOL!
