Cutting Info!

This is the original cut for the purse!
Cart: Tags, Bags, Boxes & More
Image: Purse 2 (page 118)
Size: Set at 4 1/2"
Setting: Real Size
Finished Size: 2 1/2" wide x 1" deep x 2 1/8" high (not inlcuding the handle)
I could not get 12" x 12" cardstock in Christmas red, so I bought 11" x 17" cardstock from a print shop. I cut two from narrow end, removed them and extra paper, turned the paper and cut two more. It was time consuming, considering I was making 140, but it was the easiest solution. Also, they cut next to each other right to left.

Folding Lines!

I scored all 10 places on each purse, and folded on the scores.

Single Purse!

I tested one before making too many of them. Elmer's glue worked the best for the seams. Glue dots worked the best for adding the gem, and attaching the metallic ribbon.

Little Red Purses!

Here is one box (of three) full of the little purses!
