Paper Purse

Here's another fun little purse I made.  These are so simple that even a non-paper-crafter could whip one of these up in no time.  I added some "bling" with the rhinestones around the flap and a clear floral border across the bottom.  The closure is sticky backed velcro dots.  If you're interested in making one you can find the template here.
The cool thing is this one has sides so you can open it up and put stuff inside -- like a little note and a few $$ for a special little girl's birthday!  Or maybe some chapstick and a mirror for a favor at a birthday party.  BTW - I copied and pasted the template in my Word program so I could enlarge it to fit a 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper.
Adding links to some of the previous ones I've done  so you can see the different ways to "decorate" them.
  1. Yellow w/sunflower
  2. Brown w/pink polka dots and lacy edge
  3. Tropical Blue and Black
  4. Pink Princess (scroll down the post)

    This is adorable! I'm not sure why, but I never thought about enlarging the pattern before, so thanks for that great idea!
