I have seen these purses floating all over Pinterest. I haven't found any that actually fit A2 size cards nor any Cricut files. Now there is one! Enjoy :)

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • trimmer
  • adhesive
  • ribbon
  • hole punch
  • score pal
  • bone folder
  • cardstock print and solid

Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Trim solid cardstock to 8.25 x 11
With short end of paper at top of score pal score at 1 and then 7.25
With long end at top score at 5 and 6 then use bone folder to crease all score lines
Use cut file to cut the following:
Solid cardstock Accent 2 Twice and Solid Cardstock the Circle and the flower (any flower from any cartridge will work)
Use cut file to cut the following:
Print cardstock Accent2 (there are two on once mat for this one) Print cardstock Scallop circle and a flower
Adhere print Accent2 to Solid Accent2. Lay your scored cardstock flat and line the Accent2 piece up to one side making sure the rectangle is covered. The top will have a longer overhang. Adhere. Using trimmer cut the overhang edge, it should now be flush. Repeat on the other side. Now trim the points on the bottom so that your box stands flat, no wobbling! With scissor snip the 5 and 6 score lines up til you hit the 1 inch score line turn over and repeat. Add adhesive to seal up your sides.
Glue circle to scallop circle. Score at 3 and 4. (Just make sure the flat part on top is 1 inch so that it lays nicely on the purse. OHHHH and only use checks if you dont mind being driven crazy...lol) Affix one flap to the back.
Use a hole punch to add a hole on each end and attach ribbon thru holes for handle. Affix decorative flower to front flap. Use Velcro fastener to keep box closed. Fits A2 size cards.
I hope you enjoyed making as much as I did (minus the gingham checks)!
