Remember the angry bird purse? – well, what about Halloween! These Halloween purses were inspired by projects created by Missi Roeber and featured in the September exclusive Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator magazine.
Each little purse has it’s own little personality and each started with the Big Shot and the Petite Purse Bigz Die.
Let’s start with Frankie! I started by die cutting the Petite Purse Die in Lucky Limeade. Then I used a white gel pen to trace the lid on the back side of black cardstock. Then I hand trim his hair with Paper Snips to fit over the lid.
The eyes were punched with circle punches and highlighted with white gel pen. I punched the nose from the corner of a square punch. Black Glimmer Brads were added for bolts and the mouth and stitching were hand drawn with a black Stampin’ Write Marker. The edges of the box and the nose were sponged with black ink.
Jacko the Jack-O-Lantern is Tangerine Tango embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder. When you use the embossing folder on the purse, you’ll need to run it through twice, once for the front and once for the back, lining up the stripes with the bottom fold line of the purse. After embossing, I sponged it with Tangerine Tango ink to bring out the stripes. The mouth was created with the Extra-Large Oval Punch, punching out the ‘teeth’ with paper snips. The eyes and nose were punched with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and trimmed to size.
Batko the Halloween bat was created with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch and the Extra Large Oval Punch and the ¾” & ½” circle punches or his eyes. To create his wings, I first punched two ovals and then punched small circles from the bottom edges. The wings are then adhered to the back of the purse.
