Cutting Instructions for Gift Card

Here is some cutting and scoring information for the purse giftcard. Credit for this goes to my SU demonstrator Terri.

Cut your base cardstock, in this case vanilla, 4x12 and score at 3 3/8, 4 5/8, 5 7/8 and 9 3/8

Also, cut out of vanilla:

1 1/2 x 3 1/2 , 2 7/8 x 3 1/2 and 2 x 4 1/2 - scored at 1/4 on each end.

Choose a coordinating cardstock to your dp and cut 2 pieces: 3 1/8 x 3 3/4 and 1 5/8 x 4.
Cut 2 pieces of DP, 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 scored at 1 1/8, and 1 1/4 x 3 3/4

Cut a different piece of DP, 1 3/4 x 3 3/4
The scored DP is adhered to the mountain fold. The small scored vanilla piece is adhered right above the mountain fold. Place red line tape on the scored parts and the bottom of the vanilla piece so that it creates a pocket. The single DP piece is adhered on top of the vanilla piece and layered with a smaller vanilla piece.

The larger coordinating cardstock, in this case, red is adhered to the bottom of the vanilla base and a vanilla piece is adhered on top.

When folded, the front of the purse has the other piece of cardstock and dp layered on top. The purse is then decorated as shown below.

The sentiment stamps are from Paper Trey Ink and the stocking is from Gina K and is paperpieced.

To finish, the front is kept closed with velcro and the back of the purse is hole punched with the 1/8 hold punch and a 10 inch piece of ribbon is run through and tied off from the inside.

Pin It Now!
