I was inspired by the Retail Therapy (Paper Smooches) stamp set to create a unique gift box for the ladies in your lives.

Step 1:

Trim a 2" x 12" piece of cardstock for the base and sides of your purse box.

Score according to the template below.

Add Scor-tape to the 0.25" edge and snip at 4" and 8" marks to the 0.25" score so the sides with fold upward.

Step 2:

Trim two pieces of cardstock 4" x 3-7/8".

Create the front and back panels of your purse box according to the template below.  Make a small score mark at 1" and 3" to note where the top needs to slim.  Use a scissors or a paper trimmer to remove the top corners.

Create two identical pieces.

Step 3:

Adhere the front and back of the purse to the bottom of the box (prepared in step 1).

Adhere the sides to the front and back of the box.  Set aside as we prep the top the purse box.

Step 4:

Trim a piece of cardstock 2-1/2" x 3" in a different color paper than the box base.

Score and trim according to the template below, creating it similarly to how the front and back of the box was created.  Note that the top of the box will need to be slightly smaller than the 2" opening of the box for a better fit.

Add Scor-tape along the 0.25" scored edge and adhere to the top (inside edge) of the box.

Step 5:

Add decorative trim, a cord handle and a Velcro closure to the box to finish.

Step 6:

Stamp the image or sentiment on Shrink Film with the StazOn ink.  Punch out your shape.

IMPORTANT: Punch a hole in the top of your piece before you heat.

Step 7:

You can either follow directions on the package to shrink in your oven - OR - you can use your heat gun to shrink.

IMPORTANT: Please use a heat safe surface.  Your Scor-Mat cutting and work surface is not heat safe and will warp.

If you do use your heat gun, use a piercing tool to hold the piece in place.  I usually opt to insert the tool into the punched hole, so it will remain open while I heat.  Also, I keep an acrylic block near.  While the piece is still hot, I will use the block to flatten any stubborn or curled edge.

Use the little plastic tag as an embellishment to your newly created purse box.  It reminded me of the tags or key fobs you might see on high-end purses... and it's a lovely way to make the simple very special.

Thanks for visiting!
