Project Instructions

Cut two pieces of glitter black felt using Grand Labels One # 6 (with #1 being the smallest) in the Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur™ machine.

Cut two pieces of light blue felt using Grand Labels One #5. 

Layer the light blue felt Grand Labels One onto the black felt Grand Labels One, making sure to center the blue felt. This will create two panels for each side of the purse to adhere with permanent fabric glue.

Cut one piece of glitter black felt using Grand Scalloped Circle #4.

Cut one piece of light blue felt using Grand Scalloped Circle # 3.

Layer the light blue felt scalloped circle die cut on the black felt scalloped circle die cut and adhere with permanent fabric glue. Fold in half to crease the felt. This will create the top flap on the purse.

Using one of the panels for the purse, run a strip of permanent fabric glue along the left, bottom, and right edges of the back side of the panel.

Lay each end of the black ribbon onto the fabric, and glue at the top left and top right. Make sure the remainder of the ribbon is lying on the table above the panel.

Carefully line up the second panel and adhere to the first panel. (This creates your purse base.) 

Use the Grand Scalloped Circle panel that you have folded in half, carefully put permanent fabric glue on one half of this panel and adhere to the outside of the back of the purse panel. Allow to dry.

Use two small magnets as closures for the top of the purse flap.

Adhere Rhinestone Swirl sticker on the bottom third of the front of the purse and on the top flap of the purse.

Cut/emboss Anemone Flower Topper out of pop can aluminum. (Use a piece of wax paper in between the die template and the aluminum for easy release.) This is a great way to recycle and reuse!

Layer the Anemone Flower Topper die cut and adhere with glue.

Add a black rhinestone sticker to the center of the Anemone Flower Topper and adhere to front of the purse.

Tips

Use a piece of wax paper in between the die template and the aluminum for easy release.
