Making your own kiss lock purses is a lot of fun. You get a chance to choose the fabric and the shape of your own little purse. If you have a template, the rest of the process is not that difficult. The part of constructing the template might seem a bit complicated. Please read it through first, have a test run and I am sure you would be able to construct the template with ease.
- Metal Kiss Lock Frame
- Round Cup
Step 1: Trace the frame on cardboard. Mark the middle of the frame. This is point A. Mark points C and D on the inner corners of the frame. Measure 12 cm from point A down vertically, mark point B. Draw line through A to B.
Step 2: Measure 6 cm from point B to the left, mark E. Measure 6 cm from B to the right, mark F. Mark line through points E, B and F. Mark lines on both sides parallel to the middle line.
Step 3: Measure 1cm down from points C and point D. Mark a line.
Step 4: Using a cup/glass about 8cm in diameter, position it so one edge of the glass is touching point C and the other one is touching vertical line on the left. Connect the points by tracing the side of the glass.
Step 5: Do the same on the right side.
Step 6: Mark a line along the top inner part of the kiss lock frame. That's the line we are going to cut along.
Step 7: Cut out the template. It's done and ready to be used. If you would like, you can use this tutorial for making your own kiss lock coin purse.
