Easy Sloped Top Handbag (No Die needed)


Positivelypapercraft Handbag Tutorial

Hi Everyone,
Thank you for popping by :-) Today i have a very simple Handbag that is so sweet & also quite realistic looking! This would be a fantastic gift box which of course would be kept by the recipient & maybe put on display somewhere. Its not hard to make and you only need some scrapbook paper, Card stock & some Brads. I also used a white gel pen to create some faux stitching on my Handbag.

I chose to make my bag from Double sided paper but you could also make it from Card stock if you wish. The choice is yours. I think it would look beautiful either way. If you make it from Card stock you could maybe try some heat embossing on it. The straps and zip effect etc are all made from card stock. I used a 12 x 12" paper pad that i bought from 'The Works'.

I also made a really cute Mirror tag using some silver Mirri card. The back of it is made from white card stock so you can write a message if you wish. I chose some layering dies to make mine, any will do. You could use circle dies if you have them.

I will list all the measurements below & please make sure to check out my Youtube video which will show you how to put the Bag together. You can find the video link at the end of this post.

  2. Marina, I know; we so rely on our beautiful friend to teach us via video. I do find video more helpful in my learning as I am a beginner.

Anyway, when I do not have the video; I go to youtube. Thanks so much for all the beautiful things you show to us. Under my tree there are several shadow boxes and also the magnetic book-marks. Have a beautiful Christmas and hello to your Mom . . . I loved her mug!!!!
