I have been all about the paper purses I've seen online lately and just has to try my hand. I didn't want to have to use any special tools or anything to make it so that everyone could enjoy making them. So, with one sheet of 12 x 12 and some trim pieces you can make a cutie patootie purse!
I have included this picture to help with the scoring, it was kinda hard to explain it in the video so this visual might help.
When scoring it is important to think about the orientation of the paper for the finished product. You will want to place the paper in the scoreboard correctly. The 1/2 inch score marks should run along what will be the top of the finished bag.
Supplies used when making this bag:
1-12 x 12 piece of cardstock (blue fern studios paper from www.scrapbookingwithme.com)
1-8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock
2-1/2 x 11 inch pieces for handles
2-1 x 11 inch pieces for trim, border punched

The purse is just the cutest little thing 😊 I plan on giving it a try and hopefully make them for Mother’s Day for the kids at my job to give to their mom’s or grandmas and also a party favor for my granddaughter’s 6th birthday party in August 😊 thank you so much.

I just love these little purses, i made it and gave to it my supervisor and she just loves it … thank you
Watched your one sheet purse on Thursday and already made 2 purses and gave one as a gift bag. I was wondering if you would please share where you bought your magnets for the closure of the purse?
They look so cute. Thank you. I will make it for sure.
I love this one but I really like the other purse with flap in front. Do you have a tutorial on that one?
So cute. I really want to try this.

Truly, love your purse and the stamp set. That I went and order it today. Thanks for showing me how to do this. Plan on showing some young ladies from church how to make them for the Mothers of the church.
Very good tutorial. Where do you find the magnets?
You did a great job explaining how to make the paper bags, however everyone isn’t me (lol) and you listing it in black and white will be very helpful to others.
So adorable. I think they’d be great party favors for a little girl’s party.
