For this project you will need:
3 1/2" of ribbon for each handle.
1 1/2" x 4" patterned cardstock (this can be cut at 2" x 4"). Both examples are in the photo above.
3/4" x 1 1/2 " black cardstock (or 3/4" x 2" depending on width you're using).
Scor-tape or embellishment tape.
Score your patterned cardstock at 1", 1 3/4", 2 3/4" and 3 1/2".
Use a circle punch for the front flap, or cut moon shape by hand (1/2" end).
Ink all the edges of the patterned cardstock in a complementary ink.
Fold along the score lines and ink them as well.
Attach your piece of black cardstock on the wrong side of the flap with a piece of scor tape. Cut it about 1/8" out following the moon shape of the flap.
Take a length of your ribbon and attach one end on the inside of the top of the purse. Flip it around the outside and attach the other end to the other inside end of the top of the purse.
Using a piercing tool, hold the purse closed and pierce the center front of the flap right through the second layer to the inside. Attach a small brad to hold the purse closed. Ta Da!
Insert 2 chocolates in each purse.
Take one chocolate and eat it as a reward for all your hard work! Okay...maybe two. Yummm!
And here's another photo of the finished product. My mom loves lavenders and purples! I hope these instructions were easy to follow! I had a lot of fun making them and I hope you will too!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!!
