On my last Facebook Live I held an “interactive” stamping party and we created this One Sheet Wonder Designer Purse. It was a lot of fun to work right along with you. Well, because it was interactive, sharing the video was a little difficult so I have a new video for you today.
We are going OUT OF THE BOX today and I will be sharing how to create this adorable Designer Purse create with just one sheet of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper or cardstock.
You can see that when this purse is open, you have a lot of space to add some candy, a gift card. Jewelry from Tiffany & Co. is always a good choice! Some people call this an explosion box or purse. Yep, that name suits it too!
It’s a really fun little project to create and once you’ve made one, worked the kinks out, you will find these to be SO easy and quick. The first time you create a project like this can be difficult so I would recommend that you use a piece of Designer Series Paper that isn’t your favorite or something that you don’t really need right now (Halloween or Christmas paper maybe).
When I get an idea from a fellow demonstrator, I always like to give them credit. The video I watched was a Facebook Live and I can’t find it again. I searched like crazy but I can’t find it again. I tried though so, Mystery Demonstrator, THANK YOU!!! I did tweak her measurements to make this a One Sheet Wonder project but I always appreciate demonstrators who share their ideas.
Here is what you need to create the One Sheet Wonder Designer Purse:
- Designer Series Paper or Cardstock – 12” x 12”, cut to 11 ¼” x 11 ¼” (save these pieces)
- Matching Cardstock – 3 ¾” x 3 ¾” – score and fold at 1” and 2” and 1” x 8 ¼”
- Whisper White or Very Vanilla – 3 ⅝” x 5 ⅝” (inside)
There is a written 11-page PDF tutorial available for this project too! CLICK HERE to order. All my diagrams, instructions, photos, etc. are here in a great tutorial that you can work from.
But how about an OUT OF THE BOX video!? Let’s go!

In tonight’s Facebook Live stamping event I will be sharing another One Sheet Wonder project — this adorable Scratch Paper Holder. It’s created with just one sheet of 8 ½” x 11″ cardstock. After you create the holder you can decorate any way you wish! I got so excited about this tonight’s Facebook Live, I made 4 of them! I even have custom scratch paper.

First night of rehearsal went GREAT! There are some amazingly talented people in this cast and I am truly honored to be a part of this. The music director, Sherri, is so patient with us. She goes through each part of the music with each group of singers (tenors, bass, alto, soprano). I love that! We practiced “Oklahoma” last night and the music was really difficult. I think there are 6 different harmonies going on in that song but thanks to Sherri, she made us sound wonderful…. and it was only the first night. WAHOO! Maybe I can do this after all!
SNOW DAY!!!!! Remember when you were a kid and you sat by the TV or radio PRAYING they would call our your school’s name for a snow day? Well, we had a significant ice storm come through yesterday afternoon and there is more coming in today. So, no school! YAY! I get to spend the day with Ginny!!!! She’s been so busy at rehearsals that I feel like I have barely seen her.
Gotta run! My very best friend in the entire world is flying in for a visit this afternoon. I’m so excited I can hardly stand it! She is my stamping buddy and I look forward to sharing some fun things with you from our week-long adventure.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and I hope to see you tonight over on Facebook!
