January Challenge Design Team Project

Well the challenge this month is ANYTHING BUT A CARD.
So my offering is a box handbag which I made using the Ultimate Pro.
It is made from a 12 x 12 sheet of Coordination card the decoration is made from Centura Pearl card  as is the flap. They are all cut using Die'sire dies.
To make the bag score a 12x12 sheet of cards on the A4 trifold line on the Ultimate Pro
Do this on all 4 sides.
You should have 9 squares.
Score each corner section from the point to the angle point.
Now measure half way across the centre section at the top and bottom of the sheet and make a small mark.
Score from that point  into the top corners  of  that square.
Now fold all score lines and burnish.
Push together and tuckflaps into each other as shown in the photo's below. 

You can stick the two large flaps at back and front down so that you form a box or you can have an exploding handbag.
Using some dies cut the flaps and decorate.
I used the Die'sire dies:-
Ornemental Flower for the front of the bag.
Magic Mirror for the flap cut in Centura card stock.
The small motifs are the two corners with the Classical Frame.
Punch 2 holes in the top and thread with ribbon. 
We look forward to seeing your creations.
