I made this purse with one piece of 12 x 12 card stock. All you do is score 2 opposite sides at 2 3/4 and then on the other 2 sides you score at 4 1/2. Reinforce your score lines. Below is a picture of the inside of the purse so you can see how you pinch the sides together to make the inside of the purse.
I use red sticky tape to hold the top portions down and then also on the reinforcement strip at the top of the purse. This piece is 2" by 6 1/2" scored down the middle at 1". I then added a strip of paper at the bottom for decoration with ribbon and a bow. The bow was tied by using a meat fork which always makes the perfect bow. The paper used on this purse is Sweet Slumber (retired). This will be a prize for a winner of one of the games played at my daughter's baby shower at the end of the month. Stay tuned for 2 more projects to donate as prizes.
