Another adaption of Leigh O'Brien's WONDERFUL tote purse from the members-only Dirty Dozen gallery. If you're not a Fan Club Member yet, this tote should whet your creative appetite!
I wanted to make the tote larger than the 4 inches provided by Leigh's template, so I enlarged her template 108%, printed off two of them, and placed them on the left and right sides of a 12x12 piece of cardstock. I used dressmakers carbon paper to draw in the score lines. AFTER stamping the background and AFTER folding down the front and back top edge flaps, I cut off the sides at a slight diagonal. To create the top flap I used a piece of scrap cardstock, held on the back with two brads. The opening in the front is done with the slit punch and gluing back the little half circle that results. This size will hold the small notecards with the scalloped edged envelopes.
