Silhouette tutorial: Purse Cards

New in the Silhouette Design Store...

An updated version of my gift-card purse/money- pocket card. Yes, it's a mouthful...but it's a great practical and fun design, that has two special pockets that can hold a gift card (outside pocket) and/or money in the inside pocket.

It will appear in the Silhouette design store shortly. I'll post the link here.

This variation of the design has a St. Patrick's day theme. Watch for more themes on this new variation of the purse card in the coming weeks. You may be directed to this post for the tutorial on similar designs, that go together in the same way. 

Since the card has some new improvements, I thought I'd update the tutorial as well. 

First cut out all the pieces on the coordinating colors in the Silhouette studio software. You will have to ungroup all the pieces, and move one color group at a time, onto the cutting mat in the software.  You will work through each color group, moving it onto the live cutting area, and sending it to cut. 

Side note...If you are using the Cameo 4, and the autoblade resets to 0, when you start a new color, you may have to remove all excess design information that is not on your page/to be cut. (Meaning creating a separate file for each color.) Sorry for the extra step here, it's the only work around I can find right now. 


After you have cut each color group, lay out your pieces, so they are ready for the gluing steps.


Locate the main card piece and the contrasting bands at the bottom of the purse. Attach with a good paper glue like Tombow mono adhesive, to prevent your paper from warping. It also dries really fast.


Fold your pocket piece accordion style.


Glue the darker green contrasting piece under the decorative clover piece. Add a brad to the point, where the hole is already cut. The little green tab will help close this pocket in a tidy way.


Locate the interior "money"pocket, fold the tabs, and attach it to the inside of the card with glue. You do not have to attach it if you don't want to use it. Instead of money, you can use the dollar sized note card, provided with the cutting file, to insert a note here. 


The above shows the pocket being used with the provided dollar sized note card.


Now we will fold the "leather straps" around the card, be sure to thread your decorative buckle onto the strap, before attaching with brads. Do this for all 4 parts of the card. Brad holes are already cut...just line things up. 



This photo shows the buckle straps fully assembled. It also shows a previous prototype of the pocket before I added the tab and slot. It bugged me, that I couldn't keep it closed, and taping it, would have been clunky. I thought you'd think so too...so I redesigned it with a tab and slot, in order to keep things neat. ;)


Now we will center the pocket onto the face of the purse card. Use a touch of glue on the tabs and press it into place. Then add a dab of glue to the triangle flap, and slide it into the pocket and press. 


Time to add those adorable circle handles! Add a dab of glue to the bottom third of the gold side of the circle. Center the first one using the "dip" in the purse as your guide to line things up.


For the second circle, same thing...add a dab of glue to the bottom third of the circle. Now we will align it with the circle handle, that is already glued. Fold the card onto the circle handle, once you have it aligned. 


Now we will add the other additional feature, that I decided to redesign with this version. A closure strap, with a slot to slid it into! Attach it with a brad, then fold it, and slide it into the slot on the other side. It closes and stays closed so nicely now. 

Happy Crafting!

  26. Because of all the distribution channels that the embroidery digitizing program goes through and everyone needs to make a margin off the sale, by the time it gets to the consumer, it is usually much more expensive than Hatch and not close when it comes to quality.

    There are treatments to get rid of genital herpes/ disease with traditional herbs from Dr. Kham. I was positive about this infection (HERPES) and I lost hope because I was outcast and rejected even by my best friends. I searched online to know more on how to eradicate this virus and enquired about a cure for herpes and i got a testimony posted by Dr. Kham patient on how she was cured from HSV-2, So i decided to contact the same herbalist Dr. Kham because i know that nature has the power to heal everything, So i contacted him to know he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me out with his natural herbs created by God Almighty! After 2 days of contacting him, He told me that the cure has been prepared and he will send it to me via (UPS DELIVERY SERVICES) and it got to me in 5 days! I used the medicine as he instructed me(MORNING AND EVENING) and I was cured after taking the dosage for two weeks. It really looks like a dream to me but I am so happy now!! that is the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him to this blog because that was what i promise him that i would testify about his good work to the people if his herbal medicine would cure me, So if you need his help also, You can Email him on dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com or Whatsapp him via +2348159922297 for more information you can visit his blog: https://drkhamcaregiver.blogspot.com/

From time to time I make recommendations of products that I love to use, or products that I have designed. Occasionally, manufacturers send me products to play with. They have not obligated me to show them on my blog or review them. I only make positive remarks about those things that I truly love and enjoy to use. Everyone's personal experience with various products may be different, as we all use things in different ways. I am not compensated for these remarks, and merely pass on my opinion to you as a reader. I hope you find my opinions valuable.
