P. I. T. A Designer Handbag Mini Album

Below is the paper line that I will be using to the P.I.T.A Designer Handbag Mini Album (LOL). The paper line the DCWV Indian Summer– See below for the Supply List

U-STREAM Class Sunday, June 27, 2010, 12PM CST

Supply List

The size of the chipboard will be determined by the size of your handle. The handle I am using is pretty wide so my dimension are as follows:

2 pieces at 10”x 5”
3 pieces at 10”x 2”

Pattern Paper
2 sheets of 12×12 for the outside of the handbag
2 sheets of 12×12 for the lining

6 sheets of 12×12 Kraft Cardstock
12 sheets of coordinating pattern paper – I am using DCWV Indian Summer

2 binding rings- 1.5”

Magnet Snap

If you are not using the same handle I’m using, my method for sizing chipboard is: cut your chipboard 2” bigger than the handle. If your handle is 5”, cut your chipboard at 7” .

    Watched video on handbag and want to give it a try (actually watched full one and the partial ones, you are too funny!!). Being orig from RI, I knew that accent had to be NY. Anyway, got the pink paper @ HL and would love to try (new to this stuff, so I mean TRY) to make it, have same handle. Do you have the dimensions of the inserts and pocket inserts for the pink one, I like the inserts going in that direction. Got some of the black paper (that you did not get to use due to a “cutting mishap” 🙂 in case first goes well.
    Would have sent an email request, but could not find an address. Will check site for dimensions. Hope you enjoyed your girls weekend and that your hubby is home safe.
