YOU'D NEVER GUESS ....


Well I do enjoy making something out of nuthen much .... and would you guess just looking at this little purse that it was made with cardstock, paper and an embossing folder??? No, neither did I but it turned out well didn't it?? It's not an original idea (with this brain??)I found the tutorial online, and can't track it down at the moment, but it's easy! Under the circumstances I am willing to take more or less all the credit I can get for being clever(ish) on this occasion!! I'll post the proper tutorial if/when I find it.

What you basically do is dry emboss some cardstock using a Cuttlebug folder, and sponge ink over that to give a mottled colour. Then I swiped Versamark all over it and did two layers of clear embossing powder on the top, which made it look rather like croc skin don't you think? Well that's the general idea anyway ...



Then (and all this was following the tutorial) I backed the panel with a patterned paper and stitched the two layers together. The sides are made by doing a concertina section of card, and gluing this to the folded over "leather" panel. It's not very practical as an actual purse, because it doesn't crease/fold very well, but I'd like to do more pieces in this way. I can image doing a box with 'leather' panels, and anyway it's cheap, easy and FUN!! Are you impressed yet?

It's absolutely cracking. If it was on the Cuttlebug Challenges blog thingy, I have to say that yours is a far better example.
