Cardstock Purses

I purchased a couple of tutorials from Becky Roberts to make some cute little purses out of card stock.  One of the tutorials (Tres Chic Handbags) contains three styles of purses that can be made from a sheet of cardstock.  They are small but are the perfect size to hold a few little 3" x 3" notecards or a gift card. 

I have made two of the three styles so far - this is the first one I made.   I made the handles longer than what is stated in the tutorial making it more of a shoulder bag than a handbag.  The sunglasses are also made with card stock and are from a tutorial I purchased from Lorrie Heiling.

You can find the tutorial for the Tres Chic Handbags on Becky Roberts' blog (Inking Idaho)  HERE.   The pattern for the sunglasses can be found on Lorri Heiling's blog HERE.  You will have to scroll down the sidebar on the right hand side of her blog.

Card Stock - Basic Black, Real Red
Other - Silver Brads, Silver Filigree Brads, White Signo Gel Pen
