#StampinUp, SALE-A-Bration 2019, Spring Summer Occasions Catalogue 2019, Tutorial

Mini Handbag or Gift Bag Basket using one sheet of 6"x 6" DSP

Wow can you believe this gorgeous little bag was made out of ONE piece of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper?  That’s four you can make from one 12×12 piece of DSP!
How super cute, yet elegant this little project make is – I really enjoyed making this one. My other two practice sample makes are displayed further down this page.  I’ve used metric measurements (CM) in this project as I found it easier.
This tutorial uses the new Spring/Summer 2019 Catalogue   Free  Botanical Butterflies Free DSP and co-ordinating Free Butterfly Elements . I have linked these items below should you wish to get your crafty hands on them 🙂  The links will take you straight to my Stampin’ Up! Shop Page 🙂  Please remember that you will qualify for FREE products for each £45 spent on goods 🙂
How does this one look? Cute too huh?
…and this one….

  1. Score at 1cm, then cut at 2cm – do this twice.
  2. Fold in Half on the longest side
  3. Whilst folded, Score at the folded side at 1cm, flip over and do same on other side.
  4. Open out and score at 1cm from each end, still on the longest side.
  5. On the shortest side, mark a score line in between the three middle lines at 1cm and cut flaps up to that score line – burnish these flaps.
  6. Apply double-sided or red tape to one side of bag only (please reference tutorial) and adhere together.
  7. Secure sides of bag from inside by using wet glue to adhere the flaps to inside of bag (manipulate slightly to ensure you get a good even finish on the bottom and that it stands on its own).
  8. Add a sentiment by layering up a section for front of bag, add embellishments and also add a handbag charm (tag) to finish off your creation
  9. (Sorry – you need to fill with chocolates remember!)
