Step 1: Start with a piece of 8” x 11” patterned paper. Place the 11” side of the paper along the top of

the Scor-Pal® and score at 3” and 8”.

 

Step 2:

Place the 8” side of the paper along the top of the Scor-Pal® and score at 3” and 5”.

 

Step 3:

Without removing the paper from the previous step, make a pencil mark 1-½” down on the 4” Scor-Pal®

groove. Score along the 4” score groove just up to the pencil mark.

 

Step 4:

Turn the paper 180 degrees. Make a pencil mark 1-½” down on the 4” Scor-Pal® groove. Score along

the 4” score groove just up to the pencil mark.

 

Step 5:

The 1-½” score marks you just made in steps #3 and #4 were made on the center of the flaps that will

become the sides of the purse (do NOT cut along this 1-½” score mark).  Identify the score marks that

are on either side of the 1-½” score lines. Cut down these score marks 3” just until you reach the first

score mark. You will need to make 4 cuts (two for each side flap).

 

Step 6:

Keep the side flap down on the Scor-Pal® and bend up the adjacent flaps. Align the inside corner of the

side flap and the diagonally opposite outside corner along ONE score groove. Score from the inside

corner just until you meet the score mark you made in a previous step.

 

Step 7:

Repeat step 6 for the other inside corner. When you are done the score marks for the side flap

should look like a capital ‘Y’. Repeat step 6 and 7 for the other side flap.

 

Step 8:

To form tabs, cut away the paper as shown. The teal bag does not have a front flap and therefore there

will be less to cut away. The bold line indicates where to cut. The dashed line indicates where the paper

has previously been scored. Cut a sharp angle on the end of the tabs that are next to the side flaps.

 

Step 9:

Place Scor-Tape™ along tabs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 10:

Cut a scrap of cardstock ¾” x 3-½”.  Corner round two of the corners of this strip.  Use this scrap piece

as a template to trace a dip into the top part of each side of the purse and cut out.

 

Step 11: Bend patterned paper inwards along score marks.

Remove Scor-Tape™ liner and form purse.

 

Teal Shoulder Bag Finishing Details

To finish off the teal shoulder bag, score a 1” x 3” strip of Taken with Teal textured card stock at the 1- ½” mark.  Corner round all four corners and add faux stitching by piercing all around the outside of this piece and then connecting the holes with a white gel pen.  Adhere a half-back pearl to a Build-a-Brad base with Scor-Tape™.  Attach this brad to the front of the strip.  Place Scor-Tape™ just on half of the back of this strip and adhere to the back center of the purse. Place a sticky-back Velcro circle on the front of this strip to keep the purse closed.  Note: if you shorten the ends of the Build-A-Brad with pliers you can hide them under the Velcro circle.  I then added some photo corners with more faux stitching.  I also adhered two 9” old olive purse straps to the inside of the purse with Scor-Tape™.
