Instructions

  • Trim your paper into three  4" wide strips.
  • Flip the paper upside down to mark and score the paper starting from the right side. I used a toothpick to score the paper.
  • Measurements are 1", 3", 2" (this will be the bottom), 3" and the rest will be the purse flap.
  • Fold the paper and punch 2 holes into the top of the purse for the strap.
  • Add ribbon into the holes for the strap. Tie a knot in the ribbon under the flap and trim off any extra.
  • Trim your purse flap into a shape and add an embellishment, sticker or glue dot to hold the flap in place.
  • Use a glue dot to hold a bag of goodies into the purse for party favors.
