Nugget purse

Are you familiar with the CardstockHeadquarters cardstock club? WOW! You get a terrific amount of quality papers for a quarter of the cost I've ever been able to find them in stores. (There is a much better picture of the papers on the site.) The reason why I mention it is because (1) its a great deal; 2) I used some of the papers from this months kit for this project.


Yup... it's time to join the rest of crafty-blogland and move on to the next gift giving holiday: Valentines! (hug, hug, kiss, kiss!). First up is this sassy little number ... A nugget purse!

Fayrai found this idea (what would I do without her?! I do not want to find out.) I created an original file following Elizebeth's measurements to the letter. We decided we needed to make some alterations to the original pattern because we prefer clean sides and the front flap wass too long with Cricut doing the work....(Her corner rounder must take off a chunk of paper when she shapes the front flap.)

This bag is super easy to put together.
Cut it out and score where indicated

Fold along score lines. Place adhesive on the back of the bottom tab (attached to front of purse)

Tuck small center tabs in, fold in the tab attached to "back" of purse then adhere bottom tabs into place

Attach a piece of 5 1/2" ribbon to the inside of the box on the side walls. Attach an embellishment to the flap and you're ready to fill it up with treats!



Now, I need to run to the store and get some nuggets to go inside. Yum!


Details:
  • Cricut cartridge: box - George (Heart embellishment was created using Doodlecharms heart layers. Not included in cut file.)
  • Cut File Available:** Donate button is at the top right. Please specify which file you want when you purchase. (box only)
  • Baby bug compatible
  • Papers: black - Black Orange peel (Bazzill Basics); pink - Frosted Pink (Prism Papers); decorative paper - Sparkle Razzberry Celebration (Cloud9 Design)
  • Ribbon: Stampin Up! (not sure if it's still available. I purchased it 2 yrs ago)
  • Redline tap (1/4")
  • Aileen's Tack It over and over adhesive (so box can be opened and closed without tearing)
** Refer to Cut File link to see how to get my files. .Cut or .Gypsy format only
