Easy Paper Purses Tutorial

 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Hi friends first of all Wish you a very Happy New Year! Sharing a super easy  paper-craft idea.....cute mini purses! These mini purses are made using Crealies  dies with just cardstock and pretty pattern papers.  
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
I sized the purses to hold Visiting/ID/Gift cards but they are useful to hold little gifts or chocolates as well.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Here is how you can make these Paper Purses easily
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
I used the 2nd largest die from the Crealies   Big Labelzz and Tagzz No.13 die set to die cut the base from thick cardstock.
Align the die-cut as shown and score at 2 ½   and 3 inches and then at 5 ½ and 6 inches 
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Fold along the scorelines and you can see your purse taking shape! 
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Decorate the outside of your purse with pattern paper . I used the smaller die from same Crealies  die set to cut the flap part from pattern paper.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
These purses are accordion purses and you can make the accordion sides using 2 strips of card stock measuring 6 x 2 inches and scoring every ½ inch and accordion folding them.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Here is what you will need to make the inside of the purse

  • 2 tiny magnets- position them making sure  you have the poles of the magnets aligned correctly. 
  • Pattern paper - optional
  • Ribbon/Twine for a handle - optional
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Stick the accordions on the sides as shown on the back of the purse
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Once the accordions have stuck firmly stick the other end to the front of the purse.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Line the inside with pattern paper - trimming the paper to fit snugly inside the accordions.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
Add an optional ribbon handle for your purse. I threaded the ribbon through eyelets and adhered the ribbon on the inside for a nice finishing touch.
 Paper Purse Tutorial 
And your little mini paper purse is ready!
I hope you liked this idea!

  22. Dear Dr Sonia
    A very happy New Year filled with good health and happiness is my wish for you and your family. Please wish your mum as well.
    Wow this is lovely as always. can it be done without a die cut. I now have a cuttlebug machine so cutting is easy but i have to learn to be precise. with love and gratitude as always
