So today we are going to focus on the Big Shot die “Petite Purse”. These samples are actually swaps that I received when I went to the Telford training session back in May. The first one was made by Kylie, and she made a whole rainbow of them. The picture she took of them all together looks so pretty!
The purse was cut from Daffodil Delight cardstock, and then recut the flap from Daffodil Delight DSP from the Polka Dot Parade papers. The flap was then covered with the paper using Snail or Tombow glue or similar. The purse was then assembled, and Kylie used mini brads to attach the handles, which I think is a stoke of genius as they can then be folded down for storage or transportation.
The label uses the Petite Curly Label Punch and co-ordinating stamp set, and is attached with Whisper White Bakers twine. The flower is punched using the Boho Blossoms Extra-Large punch and topped with a large Basic Pearl to finish. This picture gives you the view from the top, so you can sort-of see the shape of the finished item from all angles!
This final picture gives a totally different take on the purse die! This would be great for wedding favours for the ladies at a wedding, or a hen do, or anything else that is a little bit classy.
The Very Vanilla cardstock has been embossed using the Baroque embossing folder, I think, but any fancy pattern would work here. And the flap was embossed with the polka dot embossing folder to contrast. Again, the Boho Blossoms Extra-Large punch has been brought into play, as well as the Two-Step Bird Extra-Large for the leaves/ branches. The flowers have been attached with a mini brad and a few of the tiny Basic Pearls to add the final flourish.
Two very different items but made with essentially the same kit. After this, I had to get this die, and I have to say that I do love it, even though I am not a “girlie” girl! I try not to be too tempted by things when I see the things that can be made with them, but this was something I had partially considered before which is why I caved. It is soooo eaasy to use though. If you want to try the die out for yourself, or want to get one, then don’t hesitate to contact me.
