Small Gift Purse

Here is a fun gift purse you can fill with candies, a gift card, bath fizzie or embellies for a friend!


The body of the purse is made from a clear envelope that is folded in half.  But with the wide range of papers that Paper Temptress sells, you can make this purse in any style to fit the occasion:  whimsical, elegant, flirty… all ways fashionable!  In this example, I used Navy Blue Leather Paper because it has the leather grain look and feel already in the paper.  The trim was Kraft that was sponged with brown and caramel ink.  After adding the bronze hardware, this purse has a real classy feel to it.  (Although I did have a ball and chain for that heart and I just couldn’t find it amongst my treasures! haha.)  I used grossgrain ribbon for the handle, but you can use fiber, hemp, thick cording or other materials too.  Just remember that the embellies, colors and  papers will all help you create that desired style you are looking for.  So the next time you want to give a small gift, be sure to tuck it into one of these purses to delight the recipient!
