"As soon as I laid eyes upon the Couture range, I had so many visions of making cute clothes out of it! Too bad I don’t have any barbie dolls left these days, they would be sporting only the best! This piece was very fun! The fussy cut dresses were so easy to use" - Miranda

Anne will now take us on a guided tour of her Couture altered purse and mini album. This is just the perfect project for our fashionistas!

 "Hi everyone :-)

 

I made a purse with a mini album inside. Used the gorgeous Couture papers from Graphic 45 and was in fussy cut heaven while I cut out all the images! So many beautiful ladies, hats, shoes and flowers to use :-)

 

For the handle I used black rose lase. Glued metal wire on the back and black ribbon to cover the wire. Then it is easy to shape the handle.

Used a lot of magnets in this album to hold photo mats and tags.

Now learn how to make the chipboard purse with these great instructions from Anne!

 

"Measurements for the purse and album:

Same shape for the album,but made it 1/2 inch smaller  so the top is 5 1/4- bottom 8 3/4 5 1/2 hay.

 

Used a black paper. scored in half and drew around ( bottom to the score line )with the template so it is double.Then you can make pockets or have it open for an extra page.

Cut out 2 of the shape for the purse in medium weight chipboard.

 Flap and top measurements.

For the bottom on the purse cut out 9 1/4 x 3.
