Petite Purse Die Ideas

Stampin' Up! has a new die for the Big Shot!  It makes a cute little purse just the right size for party favors.  Well mine arrived yesterday and of course I had to experiment to see what else I can make with it.  Here are my first attempts--

A spring basket:
 A cheerful pot of flowers:
 And a mini basket.
 I had some smarties left from a previous project so I covered a few and tucked them in the basket.

Oh and the paper is new too!  It is called Summer Smooches.  Both the paper and the Petite Purse Die will be available to order in April.

To Make the Spring Basket:
1.  Cut six pieces of DSP 4" X 4".  Lay them one at a time over the portion of the die that has the purse flap.  Tip:  Make sure you have the right side of the paper facing up so the pieces are all identical.

I cut a piece of paper so you can see what is normally cut with the die:
Lay the DSP to be cut over the end with the rounded flap:
2.  Trim the pieces on the score line so you have just the purse front, the flap and the small tab at the side.  Trim off the tip of the flap.

3.  Apply Sticky Strip to the tab of each piece.
 4.  Adhere the six pieces together.  Adhere the remaining side together to form a circle.
5.  Fold on all score lines.  Overlap the purse flaps to interlock to form the bottom of the basket.  Add adhesive where they overlap.

6.  Attach a 12" strip of paper for the handle and add a bow.

To Make the Flower Pot or Mini Basket
1.  Cut two pieces of DSP 4" X 5".  Cut them as for the Spring Basket but make sure that you have the large flap included as well.
2.  Trim on the black lines as shown below.
3.  Apply Sticky Strip to the skinny tabs.  Flip one over and apply Sticky Strip to the bottom tab.  Adhere the two pieces together by the side flaps.  Fold the bottom flaps in.
