Hello Technique Lovers! So glad to be back so soon with another fun technique. Jenn here revisiting a Treat Purse done back in 2009 by "Lynn in St. Louis" The original TLC211 can be found here
. Her technique involved two separate pieces of paper to create the treat purse. My twist is to use only one piece of 8.5 x 11 cardstock to create almost the same purse. In my first photo below you will see an 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock scored in several places. Note the orange shaded area is for your adhesive. For the second picture below I have 5 steps to showing what the scored project looks like and how to add the handle and Velcro closure.
Steps to second picture below:
1. This is what your treat purse should look like after you score all lines.
2. Here is what it looks like with the center starting to take shape.
3 This is what it should look like after you glue the orange shaded areas from picture one.
4. To create a handle I choose a scrunchy elastic ribbon. I cut 2 pieces 6" long, Also cut 2 pieces of paper 3/4" x 4.5". These will be used to cover the area where you adher your ribbon to the main part of the purse. In this step you can see where I added my ribbon with double sided adhesive then I take one of the paper strips and adhere it over where I have attached my ribbon.
5. I have attached Velcro in the center on the inside of my treat bad. This will keep it closed. You can also use a brad, magnet, punch holes and pull ribbon through and tie to secure it closed. Anything you have would work fine.
Thank you for trying out my twist on the treat purse. Hope you find it easy. Any questions let me know.
