Way back in 2010 I made a card in the shape of a handbag, I don't have the card any more just a rather fuzzy photo of it back HERE on this blog. It wasn't a favourite make, and I'd completely forgotten all about it until I noticed from the blog stats it was getting a lot of hits via Pinterest. It's been pinned and repinned by folks all over the US. I've had several lovely emails too asking how I put the card together. So here's how I made it.
- a card blank, the front covered with patterned paper and angled at each side
- a die cut shape for the front flap
- a circle cut from cardstock about an inch wide
- 2 'D' rings
- 2 strips of cardstock the same width as the 'D' rings
Fold the circle in half and cut through it at the centre back. Thread the D rings on to each side of the fold.
Fold the 2 cardstock strips in half and thread through each D ring securing with DS tape. Do the same with the folded circle. Then adhere the handle to the back of the bag flap.
Isn't it great that the internet can connect you with crafters from all over world.
