Darling Cluth Purse Using Garden Lane DSP

Darling Cluth Purse Using Garden Lane DSP

There is a Stampin’ Up demonstrator in the UK, Sam Hammond, that creates these adorable packing ideas and I was inspired by a mini purse video she did.

Welcome to 3D Thursday and my Darling Cluth Purse Using Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.

I originally created this project last June when I did a whole week surrounding this DSP (designer series paper!) but like a lot of things, I never got around to blogging about it. The project is blog worthy and well that brings us to today…ha!

Recipe for creating the Purse:

  • First I chose my cardstock meauring 6″ x 11″.
  • Score on the LONG side at 1″, 5.25″, 6.25″, 10.5″. Still on the LONG Side, part score at 0.5″ & 5.75″. You just want to create a small crease. Refer to my picture reference.
  • Next, turn your paper and score on the SHORT side at 0.5″, 1.5″, 4.5″, 4.75″.
  • Decorate to your liking. I cut my DSP creating one at 1″ x 4″ and one at 1-5/8″ x 4″.
  • Cut away the bits and then burnish all your score lines.
  • I used Tear-n-Tape to secure a purse like this. It is strong and sturdy. It goes where I want it to and it will last. It allows me to make a few of these ahead of time – so that I can have them on hand for when I need them.

Garden Lane DSP

The Garden Lane DSP features verdant greenery and designs in lush shades.

I really love this DSP and it is so pretty to work with. I mean, just look at this color pallette.

This little clutch would make the perfect wrapping for a small gift like a necklace or gift card. It is also great for a treat like a piece of candy. You could give it to someone at a restaurant or leave it on a pillow. It closes with a velcro enclosure so there is no snagging and it is left clean.

I purchase my velcro on Amazon but any office supply store will have them. You can purchase any size you want and because they are budget friendly I always keep them on hand.

Sentiment on The Clutch

The sentiment on each clutch is different but my goal here was to keep it small. I used my Here’s A Card stamp set, in the annual catalog. It tends to be my go to – but these sentiments are perfect for this type of gift.

Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my darling little project. I hope it has inspired you to make a couple yourself. See you soon!!
