I had seen this purse tutorial on Youtube and knew I wanted to give my own take. It is super easy to make and takes a sheet of 12 x 12 patterned paper as well as a couple strips of coordinating paper.
I made purse body and top strips like indicated in the video. I used new papers by Fancy Pants that went well with the fabrics for the body of the purse.
For my purse, I created a flap latch that I cut first with cardstock and then applied adhesive with Tombow's Mono Glue Stick. Be very liberal with this glue. Adhere it to the back side of the fabric and press the fabric down good onto the glue piece. Then I just cut around the cardstock shape.
I scored a 1" center strip and then adhered Power Tabs to the back section and one Fastener Tab to the front. I added a button to the front flap with a Power Tab.
The fabric came tied with ribbon, that I used for the handles of my purse. I attached them as shown in the Youtube video.
For the purse accent, I made a fabric flower, but cutting a circle of cardstock and applying Mono Multi Glue all over and letting dry. When this glue "dries" it is very tacky.
To make the loops, cut strips and fold in half and glue short ends together. Apply Mono Multi Glue to back of circle and add loops around the edges. I added Power Tabs to the back to stick onto the purse front.
