Pretty Paper Purses


  1. Pretty paper
  2. Hole punch
  3. Scissors
  4. Pencil
  5. Ruler
  6. Velcro
  7. Double-Sided tape or Craft Glue
  8. Gems
  9. Ribbon (for handle)

 Step 1: Trace out template. I could fit 2 on this size paper.

Step 2: Cut out

 Step 3: Fold along the lines

Step 4: Use Glue or Double-side tape side & secure Tab a & c (little triangles) Then do the same to Tab b & d (the long strips)

Should now look like this

Step 5: Punch two holes for the handles – it’s best to have it slightly on the back piece.

Step 6: Add the Velcro. The easiest way is to put both pieces together & stick onto the flap, then fold down. This will put it in a perfect spot.

Attach your handle & Gem. All done!

I have made some different types of styles. Flat ones are really great for invitations, people will be commenting on them for a long time. Very special to use when giving money as a gift. Lolly bags for girls parties.
