I am still working with the remaining 80 mini treats. A few weeks ago, I had an entire day to myself. Ah, it was so nice and quite. The thing was I didn't know what to do so I tested out my new toy, scor-pal. I finally decided to buy one. Look what I made in a little over 3 hours. I should have bought it a long time ago.
I made 24 Top Note purses.
You were thinking that was all I could make! No, I didn't just make 24 purses. I cut, scored, and assembled 70 small bags that I used for the purses. I was looking for small bags that would fit between the two Top Notes in many places but could not fine it, so I made them.
If you are interested in making the small bag, here is how: 4 1/4 x 11 1/2. I used the 20 lbs. printing papers. I bought the papers from Office Depot and they had different length. Came in a pack of 500 sheets. Mind was 8 1/2" x 14 " perfect for this type of craft. After I made these bags, I went to Michale's Art and Craft and found out that they carried the bags that I had been looking for and it was the #1 size bags. Any way, you can get the bags from Michale's or make them yourself.
4 1/4" x 11 1/2" Score at 3 1/2, 5 1/2, 9 and 11
Turn and score at 2 1/2
Assemble the bag by first apply adhesive on the 1/2 inch flab. Then assemble the bottom of the bag and you should have this.
If you are using liquid adhesive which I did, you will need to wait until the glue is completely dried before proceeding to the next step.
Once the glue had dried, pinch the opening (top) of the bag like in the picture.
Then flatten the bottom.
Sandwich the bag between two Top Note dies (trim the two Top Notes 1" off before sandwiching the bag).
For the purse cover, make two score lines about 1/8" from the center. See picture.
The newer version was much better.
Thanks for stopping by. It's going to be another beautiful day!
