Trace and Cut flirty purse pieces
Trace the main body of the purse and two gussets on to a firm piece of cardstock or patterned card. Bazzill is perfect for these pieces. The gussets can be cut from the same cardstock as the main body or from a co-coordinating piece of paper.
Flirty Purse mini album
Assemble the flirty purse
We will be attaching the two gussets to the main purse. Run some double sided tape or a thin line of glue along the back two sides of the main purse. Now attach the right gusset to the back as per the diagram above. Then attach the left gusset.
Run some double sided tape or glue along the front two sides of the purse and attach the two gussets to complete the mini purse album.
Attach velcro dots to the album to enable the purse to close.

Attach a purse handle
If you want you can attach a handle mad from Ribbon or cardstock or wire and some beads. Basically you pierce a couple of holes at the top of the purse where the handles will attach and thread some ribbon or wire through and knot each end (or bend wire back)
Cut tag inserts
Cut at least 4 tags measuring 5.5" x 4.5" from coordinating papers. Make tabs for each tag by cutting out small circles and stapling them to each tag. Rectangular scraps (about 1"x1.25") with the rounded corners make excellent easy page tabs.
Decorate your tags with photos and embellishments and slip them into your handbag album when you're done.
Turn this album into a backpack for a kids school album or sports album by attaching two lengths of ribbon to the back of the album like you would backpack straps.
