Place the 3 ” x 10” cardstock horizontally onto the Martha Stewart Score Board and score at: 3 ”, 4”, 4 ” 5”, 5 ”, 6 and 6 ”. Accordion fold the middle sections, crease well.
Take the three 3” x 6” pieces of cardstock and score down the middle. Fold in half to make three mini 3”x 3” cards. On the opposite side of the fold, tape the inside edges of the 3” x 6” piece to the accordion folds to create the pages of the mini scrapbook.  (see diagram)
Take the 3” x3” printed paper and center onto the inside front and back covers and adhere with tape. Take the 3”x 3” printed paper s or the outside covers and center and adhere with tape.
From the Nestabilities Scallop Circle- Large dies, take the second and third largest scallop circles (approx. 3 5/8” and 3 1/8”) and use the Big Shot to cut out one of each size in cardstock, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Fold the circles in half and crease well.
Take the smaller circle and use the craft knife to make two ” slits on the fold, ” in from each side. This is for the ribbon, so adjust to the width of the ribbon as necessary.
Feed the ends of the ribbon through the slits to form the purse handle. Tape the ends to the inside of the scallop circle. Center the smaller circle onto the larger one and tape it down.
Take the scrapbook and place it with the open ends facing up. Place the layered scallop circles over the scrapbook opening, centering the fold over the opening. Adhere the back half of the scallop circles to the scrapbook, forming a flap closure. Attach a sticky back Velcro dot under the flap and to the top front of the scrapbook to create a closure.
Finishing Touch – You can use a pop up glue dot to adhere a flower at the bottom center of the flap closure. Or you can use the Tim Holtz Mini Rosette Sizzlet die and create a rosette with coordinating printed paper. Follow the manufacturer’s directions to make the rosette and adhere to the front closure with a pop up glue dot.
