Close up

And here are the measurements for the middle chipboard part and the flapa

I have put a strip of Tyvek envelope in the scor line to make it strong
Here is how it looks like when all the pockets are glued together

I also put on some magnets on each side 

Glasses box

I have cut half way through the chipboard so it is easy to bend round

Used a sirckle punh and measured around how long strip of chipboard i needed for the box
 Glued it on Tyvek envelopes and cut like you see bellow

Rolled the chipboard around a bottle, sprayed it with water and took 2 rubber band around over night so it got the shape

Glued on the cirkles on the sides

Glued first on the magnets on one side and took some paper between the magnets and then glued them down to the other side. In this way you get the magnets streight.

Again some rubber band around for some hours

Wish you all a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by :-)

  20. Gracias Anne, mi pregunta es sobre como hacer las figuras con iman, tienes un tuto? y que tipo de papel (o cartulina) has utilizado para la base del purse... que densidad tiene dicha cartulina. El proximo 9 de marzo realizaremos la 1era. Crop de Scrapbooking en Córdoba, Argentina y vamos a re-crear tu maravilloso trabajo... hasta pronto!!

    1. Hola Sandra, no estoy seguro de lo que quieres decir y crear formas con iman? ¿Google tren fingir que no siempre es el traductor correctamente lol. Usuario Bazzil prismatiks al caso base. Esperamos que te diviertas en el golpe del 9 de marzo :-)
      Abrazos Anne

  21. Anne, you creations are just beautiful and an inspiration to us all! I wish I were a friend so that I might sit and enjoy a time of crafting together. How kind you are to do your tutorials in English so that those of us here in the states might learn from you. I love your laughter when you can't think of a word in English, but all in all, you speak English very well! And you even give us exact measurements in inches rather than in the metrics I'm sure you are more familiar with. How thoughtful! Thank you for the time you take to make the videos which inspire us all! You are a very talented lady with much to offer in the arts!
