Default Sweet Little Handbag/Purse Boxes



tutorial, more sample pictures & 157 (and counting!) different purse templates here :0) (i love purses!)

These are three templates I've adapted from Papercraft. They make handbag/purse boxes

1. my fave because you can add wire handles instead (It is also about 3x3) I lightened it and took off the words so we could print it directly to light cardstock.
2. a mini one that's 2 inches tall x 2" wide (TOO cute that wee!) This one is very light.
3. cleanest template of the three, for dark cardstock (it is about 3 inches tall by 3 inches wide)

The 4th one (another mini one that is darker for dark cardstock) is here:

Sweet Little Handbag Box (mini for dark cardstock)


How to use the templates:

1. Use borderless printing to Print template onto the back of designer paper or onto cardstock
2. Simply cut out
3. Distress or use as desired

Or to print a working cardstock template for multiple projects:

1. Choose your template (for dark or light cardstock or for a mini purse)
2. Print onto cardstock (Naturals Ivory is sturdier than Whisper White)
3. Cut along lines (stores well in a clear envelope marked with sharpie)
4. Trace around shape onto desired paper in pencil
5. Erase pencil lines and use shapes

Print this template (How to):

1. Scroll down to attached files
2. Click on the file (You may have to right click and select "save as") It should save as a pdf.
3. You can open the pdf with Adobe Reader and it should print full size.

If you don't have Adobe you can download it for free here:

Happy Craftin! :0)

Absolutey gorgeous! Thank you for sharing! These would be perfect for Mother's Day gifts. Women's Day is also coming up at my church and our 1st Lady is delivering the word.....Hmmmm, maybe a very special gift for a very special lady.

Didn't see the templates for printing on Dark Cardstock. Can you post them? I am especially looking for the larger size. By the way, I made a couple on light cardstock and they are so easy to make and absolutely beautiful. Thanks so very much for sharing these.

Hi Trish,

Sorry 'bout that. Not sure what happened there. Maybe I accidentally removed the PDF when I was cleaning up the template recently? Hmmm? well, it's there now (as number 3 now though) it's all cleaned up.

If you'd like the original, you can find it here: http://www.papercraftinspirationsmag...dbag%20box.jpg
It has handles but also has words on it. I'm working on cleaner versions of these, but am so behind on stuff, been ill, but... hope to have them all done in a little while...

Happy purse making! :O)
