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).
