These Nugget purses are so easy and fun I know when I made my 1st one I was jumping all around cause they are sooo cute .. I have not done a tutorial in a while so its way over due , Dont you think so too? I tried to put all the photos with each step of directions so hopefully they will be easy schmezy ( got my new word from Lori ) to follow .
so lets get started Cs is cut at 1 3/8 X 4 3/4( I believe the 3/8th line is be just a tad bit under the mark right before the 1/2 line ) you will know because the piece will NOT fit in the tag punch if its to big ,
Ok next score your piece starting with the tag punch end at 3/4", 1",2 1/4 and 3 1/4" I always use my bone folder and my cutter when I score seems to work best for me
This is what your piece should look like when finished scoring ( wish my photo was better .. But you can see the measurements this is where your score lines should be.. This is also the time to cut your piece at 4 1/2" .. Cutting the 1/4" off on the flat end
and also this is when you will stamp your piece ,, You can stamp both sides But I did not it is totally up to you .
Ok next using your image stamp on a pieces of coordinating cs ( I am using white) . You will want to use an image that will be small enough to fit inside the 1/2 circle punch stamp your image and then using your 1/16th punch, Punch a hole in the center of your image This will be for your Brad later.
Ok next is you will apply your adhesive I am using glue dots .. just apply one on each side between the 3/4 and 1" score line and apply your ribbon to the glue dots . This will be your purse handle . ( Dawns Side note ) I have also used snail adhesive for my nugget purses and they seem to be fine. Ok next pre assemble your purse and using your handheld 1/16th circle punch again punch your tiny hole through the top purse flap and
the under neath piece. This is what it should look like when finished punching your hole now insert your brad into your 1/2 circle punch out and then insert that into the 2 hole on your purse and attach the brad from the inside of your purse.
Then your finished here are the 2 I made last night I made one with cool Caribbean and one with the Loves me DS paper Hope you found these purses to be easy and fun to make . These would be a really cute small gift for co workers on valentines day OR even cute baby / wedding shower favors..
Thanks for peeking into day and see you tomorrow .
Until later .. Happy Stampin!
