Magnificient Mocha Morning Purse!

This new Mocha Morning Specialty paper is just awesome!! The felt embossed images are to die for - and then turn it into a purse, Super Awesome! And all it takes is a 6" x 6" piece of Designer Paper. On your piece of Designer Paper you just score at 1 1/4" on two opposite sides. Then you turn and score the other opposite sides at 2 1/2". Once you fold up the sides, you make diagonal folds to push in the sides of the purse.

Don't you just love how the Basic Black cardstock straps and edges really 'pop' the pattern on the paper? It's even more cool in person!

If you were at my class today, this was one of our creations - and they even got a couple Ghiradelli squares to put inside (or eat if they wanted!). It's a perfect little purse for a Gift Card Holder too.

Thanks for stopping by,


PS - The brad is from the Filigree Designer Brads.

I just made one of those purses with the very same paper!!! LOL! I won't be posting until after our local convention in a couple of weeks. I love your use of the filigree brad!!

I'm trying to replicate this adorable purse but am having trouble with the "diagonal folds" for the side of the purse. Any help would be appreciated!
