How to Make a One Sheet Paper Purse for Gifting

I’m back with an easy tutorial – it’s the One Sheet Paper Purse for Gifting.  These little bags are super quick to make and look absolutely adorable making them perfect for this holiday season.

Let’s start with materials. You’ll need:

  • 1 – 12″ x 12″ or 8.5″ x 11″ Paper or Cardstock
  • 12″ piece of ribbon
  • Ruler or scoreboard with score tool
  • double stick tape
  • Scrap paper
  • Scissors

We will be scoring the paper to create folds, here are the score lines:

For 12″ x 12″ paper:

Score one side at 3″ and 9″ and

Score the other side at 4.5 and 7.5

For 8.5″ x 11″ paper: 

Score at 4″ and 7″ on the long side

Flip and score at 2″ and 6″ on the short side

Now because it’s easier to show you than to type the instructions out, I create a Youtube video to guide you through the process.
