Flipfold Insert Clutch Purse

Project Instructions:

Other products: Pink Card Stock, White Card Stock, Versamark, Fine Black Embossing Powder, Dervent Water Color Pencils (Crimson Lake and Mineral Green), Waterbrush, Silver Gel Pen, Paperlicious Crystal Clear and die cutting machine.


Start by taking the largest Pocket and Flipfold Inserts B – Black and place it with the 2 smallest sections on the bottom facing you. Using the Classic Border Basics Die, die cut the top most panel as close to the top as possible. Next starting from the bottom, glue a magnet centered left to right and top to bottom in the bottom section and then fold over and glue the entire bottom section to the second section sandwiching in the magnet. Take 2 pieces of pink card stock measuring 2″ x 1 3/4″ scored at every 1/4″ mark with the 2″ side on the left of your scor-pal and fold like an accordion. Glue 1 edge of each accordion to each side of the doubled panel and apply glue to the other side of the accordian and fasten to the next panel forming a pocket. The next panel will also be doubled. Accomplish this by folding on the scor line and gluing back to back to form the doubled panel. Now it is time to form the second pocket. Using the same process to form the first pocket, repeat but increase the size of the paper required to 3 1/4″ x 2″. To finish off the clutch purse, cover both the inside and outside with decorative paper from the Classic Wedding Paper Collection ensuring that you sandwich in another magnet between the Flipfold Inserts and the decorative paper on the front of the purse. The flowers were stamped on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Fine Black Embossing Powder and die cut with the matching die before coloring with water color pencils and a water brush, finally shaping with the Flower Shaping tool. The leaves were stamped on white card stock with Olive Grove ink and die cut with the matching die before distressing with Bamboo Leaves. The garland and heart wreath images were stamped on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Fine Black Embossing Powder and die cut with the matching die before coloring with water color pencils and accenting with a Silver Gel Pen and Paperlicious Crystal Clear.

Thanks so much for visiting. Have a wonderful day!
