Purse Giftbox Tutorial

I made this little gift box to put money into for a graduation gift! And it uses Basic Grey's Sophie Starter Pack available at the DigiChick HERE.

I used the pattern made available at, HERE.

Here is a list of what you will need:
1 white heavy cardstock
1 set of sticky velcro
2 clothespins
1 sheet photo paper

1. Make a 3x6 inch rectangle in Photoshop and clip one of the papers onto it. Make another rectangle 1/2x7 inch and clip another paper onto it (this is the handle). Print on regular printer paper.

2. Print one of the flower rub-ons from the Sophie Starter Pack onto photo paper (for its thick weight).

3. Print the purse template onto regular paper and using this template, cut out the white cardstock. Cut out a handle from the cardstock.

4. Use the template to cut out the purse flap out of the printed rectangles.

5. Adhere the printed purse flap onto the white cardstock. To facilitate the folds, score gently on the fold lines. Adhere the sides with the gluestick and use the two clothespins to hold the sides togther until it dries.

6. Adhere the printed handle onto the white cardstock handle and attach to the purse on the sides, again using the clothespins to aid in keeping it attached until the glue dries.

7. Attach the sticky velcro onto the front and flap of the purse.

8. Finally, cut out the flower rub-on and adhere to the front of the purse.

Enjoy your purse!!!
