Hello. Today I have a tutorial using Scor-Pal products to make a clutch style purse gift box. I was inspired to create this by the clutch I had purchased for my daughter's wedding. This purse box is also a variation of two other projects... a Triangle Box by Deb Felts and a Mini Bag by Silvey. Be sure to check those out too for more inspiration. My handy-dandy Scor-Pal and beloved Scor-Tape made these a snap to create! I couldn't stop at just one.
Let's get started! The basic supplies used are the Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, sticky-back Velcro, and some cardstock or patterned paper. Here I used 12 x 12 papers from the DCWV Autumn Melody stack. Other supplies are only limited by your imagination and creativity in "dressing them up". I used a button, linen thread, ribbon, pearl ribbon slide, dimensional, Spellbinders Label 14, adhesive pearl, and a corner rounder. Start with an 8 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock or patterned paper. Score the 8 1/4" side @ 2 1/8, 4 1/8, 6 1/4, and 6 3/8.
Mountain and Valley fold the scored lines to form the purse. See photo.
*Note- if you want to add a ribbon strap, do that now.
See diagram below for placement.
Open the folds to look like this...
The top flap can be left as is, or cut/diecut/punched as desired. Fold the top flap over and apply sticky-back Velcro or a magnet to close.
Decorate as desired.
Thanks for stopping in!
Have fun with them!
