Make an exploding paper purse.
- Score board
- Scoring tool
- Double-sided paper, two 12" x 12" sheets (Heartfelt Creations Burst of Splendor paper pad used here)
- Paper trimmer
- Adhesive Velcro
- Other supplies as needed to complete the project (Heartfelt Creations Delicate Aster stamp set and die and adhesive pearls used here)
Score at 4" from all sides of the first 12" sheet of patterned paper.
Score diagonally in each of the four corner sections.
In the outer center squares mark the center. Score from the inner corners of the square to the outer edge center as shown in the photo.
Crease along the score lines and fold as shown in the photo.
From the second sheet of paper cut a piece 7" x 4".
Score at 4" and 5" from the left edge.
Adhere the 4” section of the scored piece of paper to the back of the bag. The 2" section is the front flap of the bag.
Cut a strip of paper 12" x 3/4", and score 1 1/2" from each end. This is the handle. Adhere the scored ends to the underneath of the 1" scored part of the bag flap.
Cut a small piece of self-adhesive Velcro to the inside of the bag flap and close in place, securing the bag.
Decorate the bag to finish the project.
