Handbag card/gift box tutorial


Here is a another project and tutorial with the new shadow boxes!
I had fun making this!


As promised during my live on HeartfeltCreations Facebook page (You can watch the video replay HERE) here is a step by step project to make this fun card/gift box!

Step 1: Cut piece of card 11 2/16" x 5" and score at 5" and 6 2/16".
This will form the outer of the handbag.

Step 2: Cut 2 x 5" x 5" pieces of paper and a 5" x 1" strip and 
adhere to the front of the handbag.

Step 3: Take a square shadow box and adhere a 5 x 5" piece of paper
in the centre of it. Adhere the box together leaving one
side open as this will be used to place a gift inside.

Cut a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of acetate and adhere over the box top.

Cut two 12" x 1/2" strips of paper and adhere around the box sides overlapping the
papers at the corners to get a smooth covering. Trim to fit.

Step 3: (I had to use a Kraft shadow box for the pic as I forgot to 
take it as I was making the project!) Cut a 5" x 5" piece of paper to go over the 
top of the shadowbox. 

Lay it over the back of the shadowbox in place where it would go.

Step 4: Turn the shadowbox and paper over and draw around the aperture in pencil.

Step 5: Lay the Cut Mat Create 2B die over the drawn lines,
tape down and die cut and adhere to the shadowbox.

Step 6: Cut another 5" x 5" piece of paper for the inner of the second
shadow box. This will be the card side of the box.

Adhere the box together and cover the sides and top as previously
described above. Decorate the inner with flowers and a sentiment.

Step 7: Cut a 5" x 1" strip of paper and adhere to the centre of the inner
of the outer. Adhere the card shadow box to the outer also.

Step 8: Cut a tag from the paper pad and score at 1/2! along the base
and adhere to the inside of the outer of the handbag.
Step 9: Adhere the other shadowbox over this section and the inside is complete.


Step 10: Cut 2 pieces of paper for each handle. ( 4 in total)
Place the colour you want on the outer sides so in this case the green is on the top
and on the bottom. This way you get a perfect cut handle!

Lay the large decorative edged oval die on the paper and the largest small
oval die inside, tape down and die cut. 

Do this for both handles.

Step 10: Adhere the pieces together and trip the base of the oval away
to form handles.

Step 11: Adhere the handles to the bag and fasten the tag in place to
close the bag and hold everything together using a velcro dot.

Step 12: Decorate the front and back of the bag.

I used the Classic Sunflower on the front.

On the back I made a pocket and add some jouranling pieces
from the paper pad.

Have lots of crafty fun! 

I used the following to make this project:
