In this class I will show you how simple it is to turn a single sheet of patterned paper into an adorable little purse! These purses make cute accents to your scrap area and can also be used as gift or party favor bags, notecard holders, etc.

Variations to try: You can use a sheet of 6x6 paper instead of 12x12 to make a mini purse.
You can also use two patterned papers, as you'll see I did in the example. Simply substitute the second paper for the 6x4" section to make the sides.

I have been looking for something to use as a favor for a Mother & Daughter tea. This is perfect. 2 sizes is a great idea. Of, course my own grown daughter will have to have one. The directions are great! Love it!!!!
I love your idea. Thanks I will try it out.
I just saw something like this in a magazine and couldn't wait to try it! Your instructions are PERFECT and I love the styles!
My 8 year old daughter and I just finished one. It turned out really cute. We are planning on inviting a few friends over to make tehir own. This was a great rainy day activity!!
Ok! You have discovered one of my weaknesses - purses. The night I signed on and saw the purse, I found a sheet of Chatterbox and started and finished in just a few folds and stickies. How cute. Now what to do with another purse. Thank you for such an easy but beautiful project......
