Handbag treat box

imageSo here is a cute treat bag using the free Sale a Bration Designer Series Paper and Crushed Curry cardstock.  It only uses a  6×6 piece so you could make 4 from one sheet of 12 x 12 with a bit of matching or contrasting cardstock. I saw this on a video and wrote down the instructions but didn’t make a note of whose website, so will give you the instructions as I wrote them down, so hopefully they will make sense. Using the scor board score one side at  1  1/4  and 4  3/4 inches turn 90 degrees and score again at 2 1/2 and 3 1/2.

Fold and burnish score lines ( but not too hard as it is paper).  Then you will need to fold up the sides.  Here is a picture of the fold you need to make 4 times.


Glue down the sides.

Cut 4 pieces of card.  2 pieces  1″ x 3 1/2 ” and 2 pieces 3/8″ x 6″.  Score the two shorter pieces at 1/2″ on the short side fold and attach to the two tops of the bag with super sticky tape.

Punch 2 holes on each side and use a brad to attach the handle.

Punch a decorative label and score on either side of the point. Attach to one side between the handles with sticky strip. Attach magnets or Velcro to close handbag.
