Faux Alligator Skin Wristlet Tutorials

These are the cutest purses I have ever made. I had a blast making them. The technique is similar to the Faux Leather Purse I had posted earlier in this blog.This awesome wristlet purse was made with my Cricut machine using  the Accent Essentials Cartridge.I got my Cricut Expression for Christmas and I just absolutely love it.  It is very easy to use and has endless possibilities. If you do not have a Cricut Machine, please email me for the Wristlet template.

Faux Alligator Skin Wristlet Tutorials
  • Cut 3 pieces of cardstocks  for the panel of your box (I used Cricut Accent Essential Cartridge , cut at 4" Accent48s)
  • Cut 6" x 5½" of cardstock, score at 2½" at both sides of the longer side. Score 1" of both sides of the shorter side. See template figure below. 
  • Coat pre-cut purse template with Versamark Ink Pad.
  • Cover with clear embossing powder.
  • Using the Bone Folder, run the point through the embossing powder, making  several irregular lines imitating the crocodile skin lines. Just make it random or wavy for more natural looks.

  • Apply heat to the embossing powder using a heat gun. Make sure entire surface is glossy. Do not burn.
  •  Assemble the box and outside panel. Adhere pieces using sticky strips adhesive tape.
  • Decorate and attached a gross grain ribbon for the handle.
  • If you do not have the tools and still interested to make this project, please email me. I have the complete kit and detailed step by step instructions available for purchase. All you have to do is to assemble the kit and enjoy your cute purse.
