No die Oriental style handbag/Giftbag

Positivelypapercraft Handbag Gift Bag


Hi Crafter's
I am back with another tutorial! I have been so busy the last few days and not feeling 100% if i am honest so i did not get my usual Friday & Saturday video out. Not to worry, i am back now. I hope you are all well and managing to carry on as normal with all the craziness!!
Today i have this beautiful Oriental style Handbag for you. I did actually make this bag about 2 years ago. Well i made 2 versions of it, a small one and then a larger one. I thought it was worth doing it again as its very simple to do and looks great. I hope you like it.

I have no idea what the paper pad is called as i must of used the front cover for something. I do no that its a First Edition Pad. Its beautiful and is very much an Asian style paper pad. I had a view Oriental style dies so i thought they would go really well with with the paper. Plus, its made with A4 card as well.
