Bigz XL Die Box #2 purse

NOTE:  The new 2009-2010 Catalog will be online today by 5:00 pm EST along with a Deal of the Week (which is a new special offer every week for the month of July) as well as an incredible $85 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Starter Kit is coming later this month (you can read about that offer here).

Bigz XL Die Box 2 I got the Bigz XL die ‘Box #2’ (order #114518) several months ago and wasn’t sure what to do with it.  The end result box wasn’t very large (approx. 4 in. wide, 2 inches high and 1 inch deep).

In fact, this Kiwi Kiss rectangular box sat on my desk for a few months until I realized that the Scalloped Circle 2 die made a nice fold over wrap and gee, it could be a pocketbook!

Another accessory that I haven’t used at all until now was the large grommet (I used a silver one).  The grommet is just pressed into the paper (you need a sponge pad–not your fingers behind it, LOL!).  Then just bang down the little (razer sharp) points to hold it in place.  A 1/2 inch punch of coordinating paper will finish the look of a button or fastener for the pocketbook.

Bigz XL Die Box 2 The coordinating designer series paper that I used here is Raspberry Tart (which is retiring today), but there are simply GORGEOUS new papers coming in the new catalog!!!

And on that note, I have 5 cases of catalogs looking for loving homes… come to my New Catalog Open House for fun and free stuff on Thursday, July 23rd at 7:00 pm.  CLICK HERE to RSVP (this event will fill, so don’t delay).

    This is an awesome idea for this idea! Love the purse and I’m so going to miss that Raspberry Tart paper but I can’t wait to make one of these with some new paper. Thanks so much for sharing. Clara


  2. Amy,
    Smart move to make this purse. Look pretty easy too. You got me thinking now….

    Have fun everyone,
