Hey everyone! So last night, I got bit by the crafting bug, and I began working on a playing card clutch inspired by sweet fancy moses post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=153179.0. 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:

I have no idea how to fashion the side paneling out of cards, and I really struggled with it. Any tips/suggestions? Thanks!

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.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.
