She included a little tutorial, but I ran into issues, and she's inactive, so I was hoping you all could help me.

This is what I have:

The pieces I started out with:


Giant piece:




And the problem:

Two playing cards, pleat fold the top of each side so that they fold in when the purse is closed and open up when it's open.
