Graduation Tote Purse Tutorial Using Ultimate Crafter’s Companion Tool

Hi everyone! My name is Jinky.  I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the DT of Crafter's Companion. I love their products! I even bought their Ultimate Crafter's Companion Tool on Shopping Channel last Christmas. When I saw Sarah Davis doing the demo, I picked the phone right away and placed the order. Yeah, this all-in-one tool is amazing! It allows you to score + measure + trim + embellish and emboss. You can create boxes + shaped cards + envelopes and envelobox! And did I mention that it has a bow maker too?! I love the Bow Maker, it allows you to make perfect bows everytime!  No wonder, they called it Ultimate Crafter's Tool and recipient of the CHA Most Innovative Award 2009!

I love the box making feature of this tool, it might be my favorite. Most of the projects in my Christmas E-book was done using this all-in-one tool. But today, I am excited to share to you this Graduation Tote Purse Tutorial using the Ultimate Crafter's Companion Tool.

I just revisited one of my old Tote Purse postings and tried to re-do the project using this Ultimate Tool. Aha!  It works perfectly. This purse is super easy to make and all you need is one piece of 12"x12" designer cardstock, ribbon for the handle and extra scraps for the band. 

 This Tote Purse is great for packaging small gifts like great bridal shower gifts or you can use it to put your notecards or little gizmos in, like Iphones, Ipods, BBs and other trinkets!

I made this Graduation Tote Purse because my niece is graduating in college this month. I thought this would make a great graduation gift packaging. It will make those ordinary gifts extraordinary. 

Please find the tutorial below and give it a try.
