A Travel Themed Ladies Pocketbook...

I love the Zutter Cover-all Albums, they are so versatile! You can leave them plain, cover them with paper, paint, stain, spray, distress, ink, and alter these covers to suite your personal style and album theme. This particular Zutter 7.5” x 5” White Cover-all is altered to look like a travel themed purse. Just add handles, latch, paper and purse feet and you are ready to go!

Zutter 7.5” x 5” White Coverall
Zutter Black 3/4” O’wire

Zutter Acid Free Black Pages
Zutter Rivets
Adhesive – Helmar Acid Free Glue and Helmar Quick-Fix Adhesive Runner
Prima - Flowers, Journal Card & Paper
Ribbons – Making Memories

Rub-ons – Creative Imaginations
7Gypsies – Flash Card, Gaffer Tape, Journal Handles, Office Envelope and Tissue Paper
Walnut Ink

Designer Instructions:
1. Decoupage Zutter Cover-all with tissue paper using Helmar Acid Free Glue. I put two layers on the Cover-all so you wouldn’t see the white underneath.
2. Cut a piece of coordinating card stock with a decorative edge to create the purse flap. Adhere to the covers to create the illusion of a purse flap.
3. Add purse straps, creating holes through the cover using the Zutter Rivet & Setter.
4. Using the Zutter Setter, punch a hole in the cover for the purse knob and elastic strap.
5. With a paper towel, rub walnut ink on a tag, inside and outside cover-all.
6. Add feet to your purse, punch four holes in the spine of the cover-all using the Zutter Setter and Rivets.
7. On the inside front cover, use the Gaffer tape on the edges.
8. Add Journaling Card, Office Envelope and Flash Cards to the inside front cover.
9. Embellish the tag with flowers, frame charm and rub-ons. Tie on one of the purse handles.
10. Create the album insert using the Zutter Black Pages and the Black O’Wires. Place the album in the Cover-all and it’s ready to add photos of your next vacation!
