Stampin’ Up! Clutch/Purse with Note Cards

I love this purse! It only takes one sheet of 12 X 12″ Designer Series Paper. What a wonderful gift for someone and it’s a great way to use up some of those sheets of pretty paper that I’ve been hoarding!   🙂


This purse was made using a retired Stampin’ Up! DSP called Back to Black. A great way to use up those retired papers!


I kept the outside simple, yet elegant, using the Flower Medallion punch and a flower from the Flourishing Thinlits. The Metal Rimmed Pearls add the touch of class.


Inside are four matching note cards with envelopes. I’m sure that you could do 6 cards and envelopes if you wanted to. I used magnet snaps from Basic Grey (available at Amazon) for the closure.


Here is another version I made using the Floral Boutique Designer Series paper.  I love this one too.


I used velcro as the closure on this purse but with the note cards, it wouldn’t stay shut. That’s why I switched to the magnets.

Shadow Box Card Video

I love everything about this Floral set on page 77 of the Annual Catalog. Everything I’ve made with it turns out beautiful.


This Shadow Box card is one of my favorites. I love it so much that I made several of them. I was obsessed with them! They are so easy to make and look so impressive!



Here is another version that I made. I love this heart. To keep the heart in place after cutting, I used tape on the backside.


Sizes for the card stock and Designer Series Paper are:
2 pieces of Thick Whisper White, 8 1/8″ X 5 1/2″ (score both sides of both pieces at 1″ & 2″)
Floral Boutique DSP, 3 3/4″ X 5 1/4″ and 2 pieces 3/4″ X 5 1/4″
