Card Clutch

by Dee Slater

Create a folded pocket clutch for an adorable notecard presentation.

Supplies

  • 12” x 12” 2-sided paper (Stampin’ Up!® Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper used here)
  • Glue Dots
  • 3 1/2” x 5” notecards and envelopes (Stampin’ UP!’s Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes used.)
  • Matching embellishments for clutch décor
  • Velcro or magnets for closure options

Step-by-Step

  1. Step 1

    With the right side of the 12” paper down, bring the corners together and press down the fold at the bottom to form a triangle.

  2. Step 2

    From the fold, turn up approximately 1/2” and press the fold along the bottom.

    Flip the triangle over and turn the 1/2” fold to the other side. Press along the same fold line to reinforce it.

  3. Step 3

    Open up the paper to the inside of the purse. Turn the paper so the fold lines are vertical.

    TIP:
    Use grid paper to line up the points and find the center.

  4. Step 4

    Bring both corners with folds up to the center of the paper.

  5. Step 5

    Fold in a mountain-valley style.

  6. The center fold up should be up in a mountain fold.

  7. Step 6

    Close the purse.

    Fold back the corner. Flip and repeat on the other side.

  8. Step 7 (Optional)

    Add a closure of magnetics or Velcro on the inside of the purse.

  9. Step 8

    Add embellishments to the front of the purse and decorate note cards to tuck inside.

  10. Step 9

    Complete the project.

    The finished clutch is 8 1/2" tall, and 4-6" wide depending on the depth of your fold in step 6.

I love this design, Dee! Great tutorial. Thanks!

p.s. Would it be easier to just measure up 6" from the point on the score line to find the centre?

I love this!! Thanks for sharing.
Would a standard A2 card ( 4.25 x 5.5) fit in there as well?

Pam, it should fit - you would just need to be sure not to make your folds too deep in step 6.
